St. John’s grapplers take home academic honors across America | Sports
The St. John’s Prep wrestling program always emphasizes the student aspect of being a student-athlete and has once again been recognized nationally for its success.
The Eagles won six academic nods across America when the National High School Coaches Association released the 2021 winners this week.
Senior Nick Curley earned his fourth straight college honor, an incredible feat for the 113-pound grappler who won the national title in Virginia earlier this year and went 54-7 as a junior.
Adam Schaeublin (120 pounds) and Rawson Iwanicki (145 pounds) each won the Academic All-American for the second time. Tyler Knox, a New England champion at 120 pounds, earned his first AAA honor, as did Alex Scheublin and Trevor Fecko, 106 pounds.
St. John’s now has 84 college All-Americans in its program history.
“We are very proud of our history as Academic All-Americans,” said longtime coach Manny Costa.
To be considered for All-America Academic Honors, a wrestler must have a GPA of at least 3.6 and must have earned a state medal in their career.
Max Leete of Danvers was the only other wrestler from Massachusetts to win US academic honors this year.
