East View Wrestling
Welcome to the home of the East View High School wrestling team.
Wrestling builds character
Winning at wrestling depends on hard work, courage, and mental toughness as much as athletic ability. Anyone can succeed at wrestling if they are willing to put their mind to it. Wrestlers learn the value of preparation and hard work and the role it plays in achieving one¡¦s life goals. What wrestlers learn on the mat can be transferred to real life experiences. Wrestlers are self-reliant, mentally and physically fit, have a great work ethic, and are self-disciplined, competitive and responsible. Wrestlers also tend to be goal oriented and very confident.
Wrestling provides a great opportunity for athletes of all sizes
You will only compete against opponents that are your own weight. Our 106 lb. wrestler is just as important to the team as our 285 lb. wrestler. We need freshmen and sophomores to fill many of the lower weight classes, and you could have a chance to earn a varsity spot and varsity letter as a freshman. The boys weight divisions are 106, 113, 120, 126, 132, 138, 145, 152, 160, 170, 182, 195, 220 and 285 pounds. Girls weight divisions are 95, 102, 110, 119, 128, 138, 148, 165, 185, and 215 pounds.
You will get in the best shape of your life
Wrestlers are perhaps the best-conditioned athletes of any sport. Every workout builds strength, endurance, agility, and aerobic fitness, and with it self confidence in one's body and physical abilities.
Wrestling teaches self-defense
Scholastic wrestling has been proven to be the most effective means of self-defense. The one thing many champions of mixed martial arts sporting events have in common is their background in scholastic wrestling. Wrestling skills consistently win over karate, boxing, and other forms of self-defense.
