Cadets at St. John’s Military School have the opportunity to be a part of the Muleskinner Wrestling Squad. Wrestling is an excellent tool for students to grow in their maturity and physical conditioning. Wrestling is a sport that lets the individual prove his worth by carrying his own weight as it is classified as both a team sport and an individual sport. There is a great deal of camaraderie developed as the wrestlers help each other to become better athletes. This provides them the opportunity to develop a better self-concept of themselves and of the team.
The Wrestling season begins in November and goes to the end of February. The long season gives the Cadets the opportunity to have enough matches to prepare them for the post-season. St. John’s competes against schools in the Salina area in the 3A, 2A, and 1A classifications.
