The Wrestling program at Episcopal is committed to representing the school well by fielding a competitive team of disciplined, high-character wrestlers. The program includes both Varsity and Middle School teams, and with the school’s commitment to developing young athletes and helping them to benefit from the many positives of participating in sports, wrestling is a no-cut program. During the 2019-20 winter season, the Varsity team won 16 dual matches and qualified seven individuals for the regional wrestling championships, while the Middle School squad celebrated three individuals finishing in the two three in their weight classes at the North Florida Championship. The program offers offseason workouts, AAU club practices, and offseason camp opportunities to continue advancing the sport of wrestling at Episcopal and across North Florida.
