E.C. Drury Spartans Wrestling - Team (Wrestling) - Class of 2017
Led by Coach Larry "Mooch" Jaroslawski, E.C. Drury began making its mark on the high school wrestling scene in the mid 1980s.
In 1998 the school's wrestling legacy was taken to another level. That year, the Spartans would secure overall silver at the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA) wrestling tournament. This was the first of 13 consecutive team medals at the Provincial championships. The streak included six gold medal finishes, five straight from 2000-2004, five silver and two bronze.
During this golden era, the E.C. Drury Spartans teams also won 13 Halton Secondary School Athletic Association (HSSAA) championships and 12 Golden Horseshoe Athletic Conference (GHAC) titles.
Individually, the wrestlers amassed 14 golds and 33 medals at OFSAA, while 77 of them were crowned GHAC champs and 105 won their division in HSSAA.
Success extended beyond the high school ranks, as numerous Spartans would go on to excel at the Ontario and Canadian amateur wrestling championships.
Goodwill tours to Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Namibia, Mexico and Nicaragua further served to put E.C. Drury on the global wrestling map.
