The Benicia Middle School Wrestling program was resurrected during the 2009-2010 Season by Coach Aquino and Boutain with the support of Mr. Minahen (Former BMS Principal).
In a very short time the middle school program developed into a team with high caliber wrestlers. The team competes at various levels throughout the state from the Diablo Valley League to the SCWAY and USAW State Championships.
The program has produced multiple League Champions, Northern California Tournament of Champions Qualifiers as well as SCWAY State and USA Wrestling State Champions / Medalists.
The season is broken up into a few sessions with the first being the Diablo Valley League running from Sept-Oct. Upon completion of the league meet we attend many high level tournaments throughout Northern California from Nov-Dec. We then transition into the Championship season approx from Jan-Mar. From Apr through June we transition to Freestyle and Greco wrestling.
The students who join the team often go on to have success at the High School level. The Middle School program is a developmental program with a smooth transition into the Benicia High School Wrestling program. The Coaching staff for the Middle School have been the Benicia High School Coaches since Nov 2011 and have affected a cultural change with the sport at Benicia High School.
The Coaching staff is very knowledgeable about the sport and emphasizes the importance of all of their wrestlers maintaining their academics. The coaches look at wrestling as a privilege and not a right, and as such, expect their wrestlers to have high standards on and off the mat. The wrestlers are instructed in life lessons, respect for authority as well as others and expected to be an exemplar citizen in their everyday lives.
