With a program focused on full mastery of fundamental wrestling techniques and superior mental toughness, Armstrong wrestling turned heads within the Richmond Metro area. In the last two seasons, we’ve had seven conference champions, and took the runner-up trophy at the 2015 Conference 26 tournament with only eight active wrestlers. In 2017, our 170 lb wrestler qualified for the state tournament, a first for Armstrong in many years, and the only wrestler from Richmond to do so this year.
In order to truly compete in the region and get our students to state-placer level, wrestling camp is a necessity. However, our students and our school simply do not have the funds to make it happen. Our goal is two-fold, the more obvious one, is to learn the skills and mental toughness that one only receives from intensive wrestling training. The less obvious one is college exposure. By immersing our students in the college environment by having them stay there, it will give them a taste of college life and give them more desire to be there.
