St. Mary’s Championship Celebration cancelled

The coronavirus has postponed the Championship Celebration of the St. Mary’s Saints wrestling and basketball teams that was scheduled to take place March 19-21, 2020, in Bismarck in conjunction with the 2020 North Dakota Class B Basketball Tournament. The accomplishments and the reunion are still noteworthy and this is the second of two installments on the achievements of the teams and individuals. Last week we featured the basketball teams; this week we feature the wrestling teams.

The New England St. Mary’s Saints won the first North Dakota High School The North Dakota High School Activities Association officially sanctioned wrestling as a sport during the 1957-58 school term. Individual awards were given at the 1958 state tournament but the team title was not officially given until the 1959 state tournament, according to the NDHSAA website.
