North Marion Area MS/Mannington MS

Husky Pup -- Wrestling

In 2015, long time (35 yr) coach Mike Hays has stepped down from the reins and a former Mannington and North Marion wrestler, Brooks Russell has assumed control of the helm, and aiding as an Assistant for Brooks this season another former MMS and North Marion wrestler and former State Champion Ryan Hinerman. Mannington Middle School has had a wrestling team since 1979-80 when North Marion High School was opened, so we are proud of our traditions. Mannington's "claim to fame" is that all of North Marion's State Champions first wrestled at Mannington MS! Since 1998-99, when we petitioned the WVSSAC for a rule change, we have been a "cooperative" team through the WVSSAC guidelines, meaning students from North Marion High School's "feeder" schools can participate in wrestling at Mannington. In 2009-10 we decided to adopt the North Marion colors and logos to make our future Huskies welcomed to Mannington. We still wrestle at Mannington's Gymnasium, we simply changed our name.

The "Pups" placed 2nd in the 19 team Mason Dixon Conference in 2011, 1st in 2012 and 2 years placed 8th and last year 4th. They return several wrestlers this year and are looking forward to a great season.
