Wrestling - Coed Varsity
The Governor’s Wrestling team enters the 2018-2019 season excited to continue the success of the previous campaign. The Govs finished last season with a 15-5 record – sending a pair of wrestlers to the league finals and qualifying seven wrestlers for the New Englands. We are grateful to the young men and women who persevered through challenging seasons in recent years and helped rebuild one of the most storied wrestling programs in New England.
The mission of Governor’s Wrestling is to produce champions on and off the mat. We recognize that wrestling teaches lessons that help the athlete long after their final match. Approximately 60% of last year’s team had not wrestled prior to coming to Govs.
We will be led this year by Captains Kristoff Burrell and Albert Cha. All seven of our New England qualifiers return and will be joined by a group of talented newcomers eager to make a splash in Govs singlets. This is an exciting time to be on the mats in Byfield.
The coaching staff of Matt Hunt and Rod McLain has combined for over 50 seasons on the mats as competitors and coaches. Both coaches competed at the NCAA level and maintain a passion for the sport. Former Governor’s wrestlers have gone on to wrestle at every level of the collegiate ranks. Our recently-renovated wrestling room features two full-sized mats and is a short walk from our state-of-the-art training room and weight area.
