History of the Program
Salisbury's first wrestling team took to the mats in 1960, but went winless in its initial season. The following year the grapplers notched their first victory over Darrow School. For the next two decades the program was led by Coach Robert "Robin" Mead. The team currently competes against a wide range of prep school opponents and participates in several tournaments each year. Over the years, New England champions in their weight class have included Mike Barnini '67, Jonathan Barres '69, Lyle Foster '78, Chris Ripley '97, Rey Kelly '07, Rob Ruiz '11, Josh Roometua '12 and Jake Roometua '12, among others.
