        ▪ 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 immaculate, with
   
nicely framed photos of "past" West York Wrestling champions and championship

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

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 chatted
   
& took those long showers after a very 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,
the late
   
John T. Toggas, and the many West York athletes who competed in the World's
    "Oldest and Toughest Sport!"

             
        ▪ Website also dedicated to WY '72 Alumnus - the late A. Scott Callahan (top)...
