Welcome to Buchanan Wrestling,

 

The Buchanan High School Wrestling Team has the unique advantage of having such a rich history in the sport, and a fantastic district which strives to give the school the opportunity to be the best.  Therefore, we deeply thank everyone who has taken the time to get involved and help us reach our full potential.  Recent accolades from the past 5 years include:

 

-3 Individual National Champions
-4 Individual State Champions
-18 Individual All-Americans
-20 Individual State Medalists
-12 Student-Athletes receiving athletic scholarships to compete at the collegiate level
-First ever California team to win The Clash National Duals in Minnesota (2015-2016)
-Defending Valley & State Team Champions (with a #5 National Ranking)

 

Buchanan High School also is a part of two major events.  First, the school plays host to one of the top tournaments in the Western United States.  The “Zinkin Classic”, held in mid-December annually, is one of the biggest and best tournaments in all of California, as well as the Western United States.  It is a staple on the wrestling schedule as it provides a great way for us to compete against quality competition around and from outside the state.  Second, the Buchanan vs. Clovis High match, held in late January annually, has become the most watched wrestling dual throughout the state and is a must-see event for any in and around the area.
