Wrestling

 
 
 
 
For wrestlers, every match is a one-on-one contest of wits, strength, and fortitude. Colonels Wrestling strives to bring honor to themselves, their team, and their Academy every time they step onto the mat.  The Wrestling Colonel's compete in the following weight classes:  106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220, and 285.  Each wrestler on the varsity team can expect to wrestle between 35-45 matches prior to entering the MSHSAA District Tournament.  The "Super District," as it is known, consists of a two-day, sixteen team tournament in which each wrestler has to beat out other wrestlers to finish in the top four of the tournament.  If the Colonel Wrestler finishes in the top four at districts, then they will qualify for the MSHSAA State Championship Tournament where the top 16 wrestlers in the state compete to see who will win the 2018-19 State Championship title.
