Yorktown Wrestling Program: A Groundbreaking Year and an Aspiration for Continued Success
As head coach, I am immensely proud of the remarkable achievements that the Yorktown Wrestling Program accomplished last year. Our trailblazing season saw Liam Gil-Swiger break the 32-year record by becoming our first state champion! Additionally Charlotte Bowman placed 6th in the State in the historic 2nd annual Girls State Tournament. Alongside Liam’s and Charlottle’s outstanding victory, our thriving team consistently performed well, securing a county championship title, 8 district place-winners, 3 district champions, 4 region place-winners, 4 state qualifiers, and 3 state placers.
Determined to keep the upward trajectory of our program alive, our coaches remain steadfast in embracing Dan Gable’s seven essentials of wrestling:
- Mat wrestling
- Neutral wrestling
The anticipation for the upcoming season builds as we eagerly look forward to witnessing the fruits of our team’s unwavering dedication and hard work. Let’s strive to excel even further this year!

BUILDING CHAMPION WRESTLERS
Wrestling is a sport that prepares student athletes for lifelong success by building character through hard work. Our team values discipline, success, academics and sportsmanship.
When I joined the team as a freshman, the constant losses and intense workouts made me think the sport wasn’t for me. The coaching staff refused to let me give up on myself, and pushed me beyond my self-imposed limits. They turned me from a novice wrestler to one of the best in the state in a very short period of time.
