RP Wrestling Team Wins 999th Meet. Next Stop 1,000.

The Roselle Park Wrestling Team won its 999th meet tonight against the Cranford Cougars 33-25. Roselle Park next faces the Scotch Plains-Fanwood Raiders Friday night at home with the potential to join an elite group of high school wrestling teams to rack up 1,000 wins.

Friday night’s meet will be in the Roselle Park High School Ralph T. ‘Pug’ Williams gymnasium starting at 7 o’clock at night. It was originally scheduled to take place in Scotch Plains but the Raiders graciously accommodated the Panthers to allow the possibility to have its thousandth win at home.

Residents will be able to cheer from the stands as Roselle Park Wrestling Team attempts to make history.

Roselle Park High School is located at 185 West Webster Avenue.
