Overview

Wrestling - Coed 1st Team

Welcome to the home of the 2014 Independent School League and New England Prep Team Champions. With our significant recent success, Brooks is one of the premiere wrestling programs in the Northeast. We were also home to three of the most dominant wrestlers in the history of New England Independent School wrestling: Charlie Davies '04 was a four-time New England finalist and three time champion; Kyle Harger '04 and Sean Bilodeau '07 were each four-time New England champions, and Bilodeau was a 2007 National Prep Champion. We have also had a number of other individual New England Champions in the recent past. These include Justin Davies ’07, Mike O’Boyle ’11, Conor Duffey ’11, Nate Gibeley ’14 and Andrew Konovalchik ’14. We are very proud of our wrestling tradition.

Brooks wrestling is dedicated to developing the total student-athlete, including mind, body and character. We believe that wrestling offers a great way to develop all of these strengths. Paramount emphasis is placed on discipline and achievement in the classroom. In the area of physical development, we focus on making progress in strength, conditioning and wrestling technique. In character development, we believe that the sport of wrestling offers wonderful training for life. We often take time to reflect upon life lessons that wrestling can teach our athletes.
