St. John's Wrestling is the 2019 Texas State Prep Dual Wrestling champions.

St. John's has finished runner up for the past three years but left no doubt this time with a 43-30 win over Bishop Lynch in the final dual match of unbeaten teams. St. John's also defeated St. Mark's, Episcopal School of Dallas, St. Thomas, and McKinney Christian for a 5-0 sweep and their first Texas State Dual championship.

St. John's Wrestling has been feeding off a Texas-size menu of just about everything a wrestling team from the Lone Star State can get. In 2013 St. John's won their first SPC championship. Now they have five of the last six to their name. In 2016 the coveted Big Horn Duals of private and public school teams was added to their plate. In 2017 the Mavericks relished in their first State title at the State Championships (combined scores of individual results). Even with 50 All-State and All-SPC wrestlers to their credit, St. John's is hungry for more.

"We had to prove ourselves at the SPC level, but now we expect to win SPC," said head coach Alan Paul. "It's also about the state and national level. We are still searching for our first All-American."
