"Some WYWA Veteran Tributes"... Click Here!

     To the...  WY ... by Don Lehman

This website is dedicated to the great memory of an office, full of photos,
    a coffee pot, and the endless conversations between wrestlers and their coach.  
    website is dedicated to the memory of a scales room, clean and immaculate,
    nicely framed photos of "past" West York Wrestling champions and championship
    teams... and, an exam table used for daily naps!  This website is dedicated to the
    memory of a small hot wrestling room -  full of records, all-time teams, motivational
    quotes and a dark blue mat kept clean by a team of dedicated "mat maids."  This
    website is dedicated to the memory of an old equipment room, with its proudly
    hung and pressed WY uniforms, and an equipment locker with a history of WY's
    YCIAA Sectional Champions, so neatly written.  This website is dedicated to the
    memory of those great fans, the full gyms and the proud support we felt. 
The Alumni
    Website is dedicated to the memory of a head coach who had the vision
for the
    above, and the great patience to stay those long nights while his wrestlers
    & took those long showers after a tough practice or dual meet. 
This website is
    just a "modern" extension of the visuals we saw during our lives at West York Area!


     ▪ This website is dedicated to a former head coach who cared, John T. Toggas,
    and the many WY athletes who competed in the World's Oldest and Toughest Sport!
