Wheeling Jesuit

Postby russling » Sun Jan 08, 2017 6:16 pm

WJU wrestling is a really amazing story. Doesn't get a lot on this forum for some reason. Coach Sean Doyle was the Wheeling Park HS wrestling coach not too long ago. He took a chance and left to start a wrestling program at Wheeling Jesuit four years ago. This is what happened last week.

Just finished 2nd at D2 national duals last week. Beat #3 and #6 ranked teams in D2. Lost in finals to #1 ranked team.
Beat #8 ranked team at Desert dual.
Next rankings should have them in top 7.
This may be most impressive stat. He has 49 wrestlers at start of year and 49 remain.

Again started wrestling program from scratch 4 years ago.

Here is his interview from Trackwrestling. Impressive https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HroW2jMv9g

I read about the runner up position in the DII dual championships!

Congratulations Coach Doyle and the Wheeling Jesuit wrestlers for upsetting the #3 and #7 ranked teams on your way to the national duals championship match. That is an awesome job!!
