Monsignor Martin High School Athletic Association Wrestling Preview
November 15, 2019


A strong senior class departed the league last spring as twenty-four of the 76 All-Catholics place winners graduated. Half of the 2018-2019 NYS Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) Monsignor Martin place winners graduated in the spring as well (eleven of 22). Out of the twenty-four league place winners that graduated, St. Francis was hit the hardest losing ten seniors from last year’s league champion squad (five of whom placed in CHSAA), most notably three-time CHSAA champion and 3rd place NYS finisher Dominik Thomas. Four squads attended the CHSAA duals for the first time in league history while St. Mary’s earned its first victory as a competitor at that event. In addition to losing the league’s best wrestler over the last four years, a new head coach takes over on Kenmore Ave and St. Mary’s will be the first in the area to appear with a separate team for girls. With a revitalized Crusader program looking to make a splash as well, the race for the Monsignor Martin title should be an all-out sprint this winter.
