Wrestling is one of several sports offered by JHS during the Winter Sports Season. JHS typically fields a varsity and JV squad.
Tryouts & Practice
The season begins with tryouts in late October/early November with practice continuing on a daily basis through late February. Practices are held in the wrestling room at JHS.
The JHS Wrestling team's home matches are in the Kaminsky Gymnasium on the campus of Joplin High School.
The Joplin Eagles compete in the Ozark Conference consisting of ten teams from around southwest Missouri. While the Eagles do not wrestle every Ozark Conference school during the regular season, they will compete in the Ozark Conference Tournament towards the end of the season. The varsity squad competes against nearby schools and attends tournaments in the Kansas City area, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arkansas.
Joplin wrestles in Class 4 which is the largest class offered for wrestling. The district is comprised of 15 schools from the Kansas City, Springfield, and Columbia areas.
