This fall, St. John’s College High School welcomed Michael Sprague as the new head coach for the SJC wrestling program.
As a former National Prep and Maryland state champion, Sprague has a wealth of experience with high school wrestling in the Washington, DC, area. He wrestled for Georgetown Prep, where he was also a three-time Interstate Athletic Conference champion and a two-time National Wrestling Coaches Association All-American. Sprague is one of the top three wrestlers for all-time career wins (173) in the school’s history.
He went on to compete for American University, a Division 1 program. There, Sprague was a four-year starter, a two-time NCAA championship qualifier and a three-time NCAA Academic All-American. During his career at American, he was ranked as high as #13 nationally. Sprague also earned both a bachelor’s degree in public health and a master’s degree in health promotion management from American.
Sprague has coached camps and clinics at Georgetown Prep and for the Maryland High School Summer Wrestling League, as well as high school club wrestling in Maryland.
