Lacey Middle School Wrestling

Wrestling is one of the oldest forms of competition in human history and also one of the oldest forms of combat. Although the competition is one on one, the Wrestler must first challenge their own psyche in order to develop the courage to compete. The sport of Wrestling is a craft that will develop both mental and physical discipline when the commitment is made to strive and always do their best.

Mission: Building young adults as leaders, citizens, and achievers through the discipline of Wrestling.
