Welcome to the District 1 website
This website is the home of PIAA District 1 wrestling. Click on the links above for tons of information regarding high school wrestling in the district.

It takes many people to help keep everything on this site updated and current. However, we are always looking for more people to help and contribute. If the information (schedule, roster, results, etc) for your team isn't up-to-date, then chances are we don't have someone from your program contributing information.
Anyone can signup to contribute...a coach, a parent, a fan...any adult. If your program doesn't have someone contributing, sign up is free and simple. Just click here to sign up for access to your program's section of the site.

Council Rock South and Bishop McDevitt win Duals titles
For the third year in a row, the District 1 AAA Duals championship final featured the same teams - Boyertown and Council Rock South. After falling the last two years to the Bears, the Golden Hawks of Council Rock South came out on top this time by a score of 38-24. The win gives CRS their third District Duals title and first since 2011. Boyertown was seeking their 4th straight title. Owen J. Roberts placed third with a 39-24 win over Downingtown West. The top 4 teams all advance to the state bracket with Owen J. Roberts and Downingtown West first competing in a pigtail match.
In AA, Bishop McDevitt out of District 12 won the D1/12 tournament with a 43-42 victory over Faith Christian. That final ended 42-42 and came down to Criteria H (most first points scored) to give the Lancers the championship and a spot in the state duals bracket.
Congrats to Council Rock South and Bishop McDevitt on their championships!
2016-17 Season Preview: Returning Wrestlers
We've compiled the list of all returning wrestlers who participated in last season's post-season tournaments. You can view the list (including post-season tournament placing and season record) by clicking the link below.
Returning this season: Match Videos
Last season, PA-Wrestling.com started a new service to record video of regular season dual meets within District 1. We hope this service will help enhance the fan experience as well as create additional exposure for District 1 wrestling around the state and beyond. It's back for 2016-17!
We plan to present a "Match of the Week" each week of the regular season. Some weeks might have a second match as well. All matches will be recorded and posted to our YouTube channel the day after the match. Subscribe to our channel and enable notifications so you are notified as soon as we post any videos. When available, we hope to live stream some matches as well. Any matches that are live streamed will also be archived for later viewing.
District 1 Post-Season brackets back to 1974
During the summer of 2015 (after quite a lot of work), we have finally published a near-complete history of all District 1 post-season tournament results/brackets going back to 1974. There are a few tournaments that don't have complete results but the overwhelming majority of the section, district, and regional tournaments are complete. This project simply couldn't have been done without the work of Jack Holt, D1's wrestling historian! If you wrestled for a D1 team between 1974 and today...you HAVE to check it out.
2015-16 Season is History
After another great regular season and team post-season, the individual post-season didn't disappoint. Even though District 1 didn't claim any gold medals in Hershey, 20 District 1 wrestlers came home with individual hardware. Check the links below for all the brackets and results for all the post-season tournaments.
At the conclusion of each season, the District 1 Coaches Association names their All-Academic team. Check the link below for the list of D1 wrestlers who excelled on the mat AND in the classroom this past season.
2015-16 Season Preview: Leagues
With the new season getting closer and closer, we are publishing league previews for each league in D1. These were compiled and sent in by someone on our rankings team. Thanks for all the hard work in compiling the previews...they are a great reference to use early in the season. Incoming freshmen were not included in the previews.
Follow us on Twitter
PA-Wrestling.com is finally on Twitter... Follow @PA_wrestling as we'll be posting final scores from around District 1 as well as links to the boxscores as soon as they are available on the site. Most posts will have the #PAD1wrestle hashtag as well.
Top 25 District 1 wrestlers over the past 25 years
After the 2014 state tournament concluded, a panel of ten District 1 wrestling experts were asked to rank their top 25 D1 wrestlers over the past 25 years. Anyone who graduated from 1990 up to this year's senior class would be eligible for the list. We tallied all the votes to come up with our Top 25 list. Check out the link below for the list of contributors, wrestlers who received votes but not enough to crack the top 25, and the actual top 25 list.
