Team Overview: Our main goal - obviously - is to have all wrestlers win a State Championship! But we really want the young man and women that we coach to develop a love and respect for the sport of Wrestling. We do this by instructing the wrestlers in proper conditioning techniques - both physical and mental. We also encourage correct nutrition habits. And, last but not least, we nurture a respectful attitude towards the teammates, opponents, referees, and the sport in general.

Team Highlights: 
For the 2016-17 Season - 2nd place at the Warrior Invitational Tournament at Henrico High School in December; 2nd place at the Liberty Or Death Duals at Armstrong High School in January. Javonte Tuppince (220) was named the Outstanding Wrestler at the Henrico Invitational Tournament at Henrico High School in January.

Anyone can come work out with us as long as you have a current VHSL physical on file (to be current a physical must be dated after May 1st). Contact Coach Reilly for more information.
