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.

When reviewing Semester 1 grades, please be aware of the following:
• Be sure to review the report card document, as all grades listed on it are the official grades for each course for the semester.
• Report cards will only contain final grades for the 1st semester; they do not include semester averages nor exam grades. For more information regarding grades for individual assignments and/or exam grades, students and parents should refer to the grade postings in Open LMS.
o Additionally, since the 2nd semester is already underway, new grades for the new semester may already have been entered into gradebooks in Open LMS. Consequently, please be aware that the "Class Total" in Open LMS – the current grade that is being displayed in Open LMS - may be different from the 1st semester final grade on the report card.
• If a parent or student has any questions about grades or related assignments, please contact the respective teacher directly as soon as possible, ideally no later than one week after report cards have been posted.
Anyone interested in helping with live streaming our Winter Sports this season, helping with Social Media updates and/or providing commentary or PA Announcements for Basketball, Swimming, Wrestling or Hockey should contact Mr. Johnson ASAP. Plenty of opportunities available!

As most of you will have seen, Governor Wolf has issued orders extending the closing of schools. The tentative earliest date schools may reopen is now set for Monday, April 6, 2020. As all of us have come to appreciate, this date is a guarantee written in water. Depending on the progress of the disease and the success of containment and suppression activities, this date will be subject to further extension if need be.
Dining Services: Due to recent public health concerns, some of the self-serve foods will be either moved behind the service counter or into grad and go containers. Thank you for your understanding.
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:
