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. This
website is dedicated to the memory of a scales room, clean and
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
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
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.
Alumni Website is dedicated to the memory of a head coach who had the vision
above, and the great patience to stay those long nights while his wrestlers
& took those long showers after a tough practice or dual meet.
just a "modern" extension of the visuals we saw during our lives at West York
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!
