TCC & Wrestling

TCC and wrestling

The TCC has never sanctioned or held an official league wrestling event.

However, that hasn’t stopped several league schools from building some impressive wrestling programs.

Madison was a state power when the league began, winning several state championships and having 22 state champions between 1974 and 1982.

Morenci has added to that impressive list of TCC champs since it joined the league while Whiteford and Whitmore Lake also have had individuals make it through the state tournament. Sand Creek’s Sam Mehan won a state title in 2011, the first Aggie to do so.

Clinton has long had a wrestling program and joined the TCC in 2007. Noah Comar was state champion in the 112-pound weight class in 2017, the same year the Redskins qualified for the state quarterfinals for the second time in three years.
