Blair Back on Top With No. 1 Overall National Ranking

The annual Wyoming Seminary (PA) vs. Blair Academy match is always high stakes and the 2020 rendition was an instant classic. This battle of the nation’s Top Two teams went down to the wire as Blair secured a 31-24 win to become the new No. 1 overall-ranked high school team in the United States.

The Bucs won four of their five last matches from 170 pounds to heavyweight to lock up the win before a raucous capacity crowd at Blair.
