Welcome to the official home of La Salle Explorer Wrestling!
La Salle Wrestling has a winning tradition with multiple state and national placers. The coaching staff looks to continue this tradition, while preparing our young men at La Salle for a rigorous college schedule. Wrestling is a great sport teaching many values of discipline, commitment, and determination. We are looking for student-athletes to continue the great tradition of La Salle Wrestling.
La Salle wrestling has produced over 90 PCL champions in the last 30 yeas, and 45 individual PCL Champions since 2009. La Salle has won 6 of the last 7 PCL and District 12 Titles.

The La Salle wrestlers are back in action on Saturday December 12th as they host the Travis Manion Tournament.
Who We Are
La Salle Wrestling consistently gives La Salle College High School a winning season. If you've ever been to a match, you know it's one of the most exciting and inspiring activities at La Salle. The Takedown Club works very hard behind the scenes to provide the encouragement and financial support to insure the continued success of this program. The camaraderie of the team members, parents, coaches, and faculty is perhaps greater than any other sport.
Every year the Takedown Club raises money to support and reward our kids for their hard work. We are a non-profit organization and spend all money raised on our wrestlers. Travel expenses, tournament fees, trophies, and jackets are only a few of the items we support. We need your help to continue our team's tradition of excellence.
Volunteers are needed and always welcome. Listed below are committees that help raise money and perform necessary functions to make wrestling at La Salle a unique experience. Please contact any member of the Takedown Club to volunteer to help our wrestling program by serving on one of the following committees:
