Both the Tahoma High School wrestlers and program achieve growth through commitment to individual and team excellence. Much like in life beyond athletic competition, dedication, perseverance, and above all courage are required to make it through intense struggle. The wrestling staff utilizes strong relationships and as combination of high demand and support so our athletes become confident, decisive, courageous and most importantly dedicated to the team. Winning matches is not the primary goal of this program. The program is designed to prepare wrestlers for successful transitions into their adult lives. Our program’s success is a by-product of our athletes’ commitment to excellence while consistently making good decisions on and off the mat.


Most men stop when they begin to tire. Good men go until they think they are going to collapse.

But the very best know the mind tires before the body and push themselves further and further, beyond all limits.

Only when these limits are shattered can the unattainable be reached.
