Brunswick wrestling coach Tim Ostrye was honored as the National Coach of the Year on Sunday at the 2019 National Prep Wrestling Championships, held at Lehigh University.
Now in his 33rd season at the helm, Ostrye's team posted an 18-1 record in dual matches and won the FAA team title for the 22nd time in a row. Additionally, the squad took first place at the WNEISWAs for the sixth-straight year and finished fifth at the New England Championships.
The Bruins sent five wrestlers to the Prep Nationals this year. The team finished 21st out of 122 teams, while producing two All-Americans (Chris Perry 126-lb., Luca Errico 138-lb.) at the 84th meeting of the top prep wrestlers in the country. Both Perry and Errico finished in fifth-place overall in their respective weight classes.
A week earlier, Ostrye was tabbed by the NEPSAC coaches as the Coach of the Year.
