Saint Joseph High School Wrestling Returns for the 2018-2019 School Year
Saint Joseph High School announced during its Fall Open House that the Wrestling program, which had been dormant for 24 years, is returning in full force to SJHS. You can read about the formal announcement here: http://www.mycentraljersey.com/story/sports/high-school/wrestling/2017/10/15/st-joseph-bring-back-wrestling-high-schools-15th-sport/765913001/.
Since the announcement that wrestling will be returning, SJHS has formally requested to be added to the scheduling matrix to the GMC wrestling schedule for the 2018-2020 scheduling cycle. Saint Joseph will be competing in the White Division of the GMC in Wrestling as a varsity sport for the 2018-2020 cycle. This division of the GMC features several perennial wrestling powers and will create immediate opportunities for talented wrestlers in our building to compete at the varsity level.
The addition of wrestling as the school's fifteenth program rounds out our athletic offerings and completes the void left in our program. Under the tutelage of coach Don Bryner (still an active Saint Joseph Partner in Mission), Saint Joseph wrestling had an impressive tradition and history, albeit without the benefit of having a football program and athletes competing in both sports.
With a back-to-back undefeated regular season and Division Champion football team continuing to grow from their installment as our school's 14th sport a decade ago, we feel there is no better time or infrastructure to challenge as a great and growing wrestling program.
