Season Outlook:
The 2022-23 version of Castleton Wrestling should prove to be the best in program history. In 2021-22, Castleton claimed 2 tournament championships and a second place finish at the Citrus Invitational to go along with a 15-2 dual meet record. James Rodriguez became the program’s first All-American. Depth will prove to be an asset, with an extremely aggressive schedule for the 2022-23 season. Nine starters return, and a strong incoming class enters, including 4x Pennsylvania placewinner Gavin Bradley.
