A proud program that is used to being on top is back there again. In these past few years it has only been a so so years of wrestling for the Mount as other teams took over in their place but once again the Mount is where it should be. Probably one of the greatest runs in HS sports from the early 70's to the mid 90's these Gaels teams have been only average lately. Now with a new coach in Harry Barnaebae (sp) we see a new energy happening. Paul Tripplet took these Gaels for 10 years and made them a powerhouse. Before him Aldelberg and Smith coached and began the dynasty. Tripplett came back and now it is Barnabae who leads them. I know I have misspelled their names but you all get who I mean. Great wrestlers of yesteryear, the Schmidt's, Hefner's, Chiperelli's Reina's, Barnabee's, Salvo's, Shaw's and many others are long gone and now we see new young studs taking over. If ever a school has been dominate in a HS sport in this country, MSJ can stand with the best. For decades no one was better and today they just maybe starting a new dynasty.
