Who’s Going Where…S9 Grads Who Will Wrestle In College

Warwick Leads Way Sending Four!!!

With graduation just around the corner, I figured now would be as good of a time as ever to compile a list of our Section 9 wrestlers who plan on showcasing their skills at the next level.  I am positive that this list is not comprehensive so if you have any information about a S9 wrestler who I have omitted, please contact me at sectionixwrestling@gmail.com so I can update the list.  I have created a “college” menu option on the site and will provide information about these and all of our S9 alum who are competing at the collegiate level.
