Northeast Pennsylvania's premier private school


Wrestling - Girls Varsity



Sem's girls wrestling program, first announced in January 2017, will begin as a pilot program in fall, 2017, and its members will train with the school's nationally-ranked boys wrestling program. The expansion of Sem's wrestling program to include a girl's program reflects the nation-wide popularity of the sport. The new program will be led by USA Wrestling's Assistant National Women's Coach Erin Tomeo Vandiver.

Wyoming Seminary is the only high school in the country to feature a girls wrestling program headed by an Olympic-level coach. For more information about the program, please call Sem's Admissions Office at (570) 270-2160.
