Athletics Team

Varsity Wrestling

The 2019 Canisius wrestling team has a new coach, new culture and a new attitude! During the offseason the team announced its new coach, former Lockport Assistant Dave Wilcox. Coach Wilcox was a six year varsity wrestler at Lockport and a two time All American. This year the team is lead by 2018 All Catholic Champion Josh Kracker, Catholic state 3rd place finisher Matt Baldwin, 4th Place finisher Tom Blackwell and 3rd place All Catholic finisher Jacob Perez. This years freshman class is already proving to be one of the best in recent years. Cody Franklin, Luke Brydges and Braydon Vandenburg have all earned varsity spots and started the season with winning records. Brydges and Vandenburg were selected to the Holly All Tournament team in their debut tournament. A host of other experienced wrestlers including Nick Mecca, Collin Monteleone, Barry Colby, Caleb Librock, Pat Notaro, Pat Tronconi and Noah Rockensuess bolster a team that started out with a 8-0 record including its first Tournament Championship in 10 years. The team numbers are extremely strong, with an up and coming JV team as well. Look for great thing out of this team as the season progresses.
