Niagara Frontier League Wrestling Preview
November 13, 2019


Another outstanding year in the Niagara Frontier League saw Niagara Wheatfield represent the league and Section at the NYSPHSAA Dual Meet Championships. The Falcons also reclaimed the league title for the first time since 2015-2016 and accounted for a third of the Section VI Division I individual champions. The league as a whole generated ten of the 15 large school individual sectional champions and qualified three teams (Wheatfield, Niagara Falls, and Grand Island) for the Section VI Dual Meet Championships.

Overall, the competition between the league’s top three teams was intense and proved a significant gap exists between them and the rest of the league, at least last season. The last time a team that finished in the bottom five of last year’s NFL standings (except Lockport) placed top three in the league was the 2013-2014 season (Lewiston-Porter).
