    Marist Wrestling had a busy holiday season beginning with a 7th Place finish at the McCallie Invitational Wrestling Tournament in Chattanooga and concluded with a 5th Place finish at the Holy Innocent's Prep Slam.  The War Eagle wrestlers continued to exceed expectations as at the McCallie Tournament with sophomore Andrew Pace and senior Max Blanchard each earning 3rd Place finishes followed by juniors Grey (5th) and Reed Bethune (6th).

The 5th Place finish ties the program’s highest finish at this event and the accolade of top competing private school in the state.
