Nixon’s title highlights St. Joe’s performance at state meet
February 14, 2017


St. Joe’s wrestling completed its best-ever finish at the Catholic High School Athletic Association’s State Championship meet this weekend. The Marauders took fourth with 148.5 points – the best finish in program history.

“It’s always a tough tournament,” St. Joe’s coach Peter Kennedy said. “We’re certainly not happy with just having one champion. The team score piece is a positive. Every kid had a hand in it. We’ve never been higher than fifth before. It’s tough to move up the ladder. The schools we’re going up against are so big, they’re bigger than any public schools around here. It’s going to take a big effort to take the next step up to the podiums.”
