J. Michael LUNSFORD MS WRESTLING
Welcome to Lunsford Wrestling!
Practices run from November through February
Become part of history by joining the first ever wrestling team to represent our school during the 2016-2017 season!
This team is primarily for students who attend Mercer and Lunsford middle schools. There will be wrestlers with experience on the team, but for the most part, our group will be comprised of brand new wrestlers. So it's a fantastic opportunity to join the "world's oldest sport" and determine if it's an activity you'll want to continue in high school.
The team will practice two evenings a week at local high schools, beginning in November. The new team will be led by coaches from the Dulles South Youth Sports and Freedom HS. The season ends around the end of February/early March.
Our team will compete in the new Middle School division of the super popular Dulles Duals. These exciting events are held at Top of the Podium on Saturdays throughout the season. Our new uniforms consist of fight shorts and compression shirts! We will compete as a team and expect most wrestlers to get 10-20 matches over the season. We also intend to participate in one or more meets at local high schools, including Freedom HS, in conjunction with high school varsity matches.
Wrestlers have the option of competing more frequently during the season. The coaching staff will explain all such opportunities once the season begins.
The required equipment needed for wrestling is a headgear and wrestling shoes. If possible, we encourage you to purchase your equipment at TOP OF THE PODIUM Wrestling Center in Sterling. TOP is a local, 501(c)3 nonprofit and prices are usually lower than big box stores. Hours are limited, so email TOP before making the trip.
To register for this team, you must join a local youth wrestling club. We are proud to affiliate with Dulles South Youth Sports. Click here for more information about this club.
