Archbishop Wood Wrestling 
With many of our wrestlers returning from a solid performance during the previous 2014-15 season (graduated only 1 senior from last year's line-up), the team worked hard during the off-season (March thru November), working out at Coach Meister's gym at least 3-days every week, competing year-round and attending our team wrestling camps at Wood and at Kutztown University.  

On December 19th, Wood hosted the 4th Annual Kurt Meister Invitational Wrestling Tournament and the team took 1st place.  With a dual match record this year (2015-16) of 10-7 overall and 3-0 in the PCL Blue division.  Wood was the #1 seeded team entering the PCL dual team playoffs where they wrestled LaSalle in the semi-finals.  Wood won (37-33), beating LaSalle for the 1st time since 2004, putting them into the Championship match for the 1st time in 12 years against Father Judge.  Wood ultimately lost to Father Judge (25-32) in a very close match, in front of a packed gym.  This past weekend the team won the PCL Sectional Championship for the first time ever, and it was the first time Wood won the PCL League Championship since 1989.  The team qualified 10 out of the 12 wrestlers to the District Championships this coming weekend.  The team is hopeful to qualify all 10 wrestlers onto the Regional Championships, which is the gateway to entering the State Championships.  

In addition to the success on the mat, the wrestling team has 7 varsity wrestlers eligible for Academic All-State Honors: Alex Shaffer (0.784), Max Shaffer (0.718), Harry Green (.722), Brett Yoos (0.629), Steve Veneziale (0.600), Austin Gillick (0.686) and Matt Murray (.615).  

Wood Wrestling will be having their annual Beef n Beer on April 2, 2016. Mr. Peter's will be presented with a commemorative ring that the Wood Wrestling Alumni got him to honor his service to the school and wrestling team.
