J. Michael LUNSFORD WRESTLING
Welcome to Lunsford-Mercer Wrestling!
Practices run from November through February
Last year, we formed the first ever Lunsford-Mercer wrestling team. The group was comprised of experienced and beginner wrestlers and enjoyed a tremendous season. This year, we plan to recruit more new wrestlers and build on the momentum that started last winter.
This team is primarily for students who attend Mercer and Lunsford middle schools. This is a fantastic way 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. The season ends around the end of February/early March.
Our team competes in the Middle School Division of the popular Dulles Duals. These events are held at Top of the Podium on Saturdays throughout the season. Our uniforms consist of fight shorts and compression shirts! We also participate in meets at local high schools in conjunction with high school varsity matches, as well as other events at TOP and the Mason-Dixon League.
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.
