National Prep Wrestling Championships History


Special Thanks to Larry Sheridan, son of William (Lehigh Coach & National Prep Tournament Founder), who has maintained copies of all tournament brackets back to 1935.

All records compiled and updated regularly by Bill X. Barron (Cardigan Mt. 1980-98, Hyde-ME 1998-2008) – e-mail any additions / corrections / suggestions to In certain years, the brackets did not identify consolation place-winners; please help fill in the missing information!

Not all first names were listed on many early brackets; as much as possible, they have been filled in by viewing adjacent years and newspaper articles. If you would still like your own copy of a bracket or news article, email Bill and he will send it to you directly. Bill welcomes any correspondence, especially anecdotes from past wrestlers and coaches, as a written history of the National Preps is in the making. PDF files of the history of the National Prep Championships are at the bottom of the page.
