Wrestling - Boys Varsity

Overview

The Wyoming Seminary wrestling program is considered to be one of the best high school programs in the country. In the past several years, the Blue Knights have produced numerous National Prep Champions and All-Americans and have been consistently ranked within the top five programs in the nation. Sem wrestlers have recently gone on to compete at elite wrestling programs such as Harvard, Northwestern, Cornell, Penn State, Lehigh, Columbia, Virginia, North Carolina State, Virginia Tech, Maryland and many more.

The Blue Knights turned in another incredible season, both individually and as a team, in 2017-2018.
Sem crowned five national prep champions – the most since the 2015 season –  including ZEKE ESCALERA ‘20 (120), BEAU BARTLETT ‘19 (126), JACK DAVIS ’18 (132), CARSON MANVILLE (138), and CONNOR KIEVMAN ’20 (145). The Blue Knights finished second in the country in the team standings at the National Prep Championships.
For Barlett, the title win was also the 100th victory of his career and his second straight national championship, while Davis, who is headed to Penn State University, closed out his career with two national titles.
Coach Scott Green and the Blue Knights have celebrated 27 individual national titles since he took over the program in 2010.

Prior to nationals, Sem captured its 12th consecutive state title at the Pennsylvania Independent Schools Wrestling Championships in February at Malvern Prep. Davis won his third straight state title at 132, while Escalera (120), Bartlett (126), Manville (138), JAKE STEFANOWICZ ‘19 (160), DARRIEN ROBERTS ‘19 (182), and MICHAEL DOGGETT ‘19 (220) were also state champions.
JAKE HENDRICKS ‘18 (170), AUSTIN COOLEY ‘19 (195), and NICK MARTINO ‘18 (285) were state runners-up.

Sem opened the season with its fifth consecutive team title at the XCalibur Invitational in December at Wilkes University. The Blue Knights dominated the tournament, winning 12-of-14 weight classes.
The Blue Knights also hosted their inaugural MyHouse Melee at Carpenter Athletic Complex on Jan. 27.

Other highlights of the year included a win for LINCOLN HECK ’20 (120) at the Tunkhannock Holiday Tournament. The Blue Knights also claimed the team title at the Powerade Tournament and saw Barlett (126) and Manville (132) earn individual wins.

In addition to Davis signing with the Nittany Lions, Hendricks will wrestle for the University of Pennsylvania and TONY CUTRIE ’18 (285) signed with the University of Virginia.
