Wrestling is the oldest sport in the world. It's the sport that every child first does in the living room with their siblings. We believe that wrestling can help positively mold a student-athlete, foster school spirit, and grow community. We are community-driven. Springfield has a great community with committed coaches, parents, administrators, civic leaders and local business owners. We couldn't be more proud to be a part of a supportive community that values the development of young people. Our mission is to grow wrestling in Springfield, and give Springfield youth the opportunity to learn and compete in this great sport.
We serve K-12 boys AND girls in the Springfield community. Wrestling is for everyone!
THE TRADITION STARTS HERE!
Established in 1910, wrestling at Springfield High School has always had an impact on the local community. In 1949, Springfield had its first state champions in Elmer Paul (104 pounds) and Everett Alford (178 pounds). Phil Hollister won the 166 pound finals in 1950. Most recently, Sean Braddock won a state title in 1983 in the 148 pound weight class. The Springfield Millers have not won a team state title in its history, but they have placed as high as third (1950 and 1957). Along with those third place finishes, the Millers have placed in the top 10 in three different occassions (6th-1949; 7th-1951; 7th-1983).
