The Dominating QV Youth Wrestling Team


Even though the team is largely made up of new and inexperienced athletes, the Quaker Valley Youth Wrestling program has had quite a successful year.  The team of over 40 young wrestlers is coached by Jason Richey, who says of his team, "Our Sewickley kids are tough, committed, able to learn moves and love their sport."  This is the team's first year of existence and already it has seen an unbelievable amount of tournament wins, conference meet victories, and personal athletic improvement.  

A successful program like this is truly a positive community asset for Sewickley's children.   The Quakers currently have the potential to qualify for the upcoming state championship.The wrestling team's season stats can be found on their website.  The team practices weekly at the Sewickley Community Center and hopes to grow to 60 wrestlers next year.  For more information, visit their website at www.quakervalleywrestling.com
