Central Catholic has one of Ohio’s most respected wrestling programs. The Irish regularly compete against some the best programs across Ohio and Michigan and prides itself on All-academic achievement, the character of the squad, and being best dressed while traveling to tournaments. The program has crowned three individual state champions in the last two years and 15 all-state athletes in the last five years. Last season two of the nine Central Catholic state qualifiers were wrestlers with less than three years of experience.  For the second straight year, the Central Catholic program reached the team state semifinal and finished as one of the top four OHSAA Division II dual meet teams.
