Coach Calixto looks on at practice
Coach Rafael Calixto earns 100th Win on 1/31/18

Ellis Tech wrestling has seen quite a turn around since head coach Rafael Calixto took over 5 seasons ago.  The program went from a handful of athletes to enough wrestlers to field both JV and Varsity.  This is no surprise due to the great coaching of the head coach himself, and the talented assistants he brings in to work with the team.  In a short 5 year time span, the Golden Eagles squad has garnered many amazing achievements including a Class M State Championship for the team, and multiple individual state champions, state open champions and New England Champions.  The latest achievement is a personal record for Coach Calixto though he won't take any of the credit.

On Wednesday January 31st, 2018 the Golden Eagles wrestling squad won its 100th match since Calixto took over.  Without a doubt he is probably the most successful wrestling coach Ellis Tech has ever seen.  Calixto would most likely say that this achievement is a program achievement, not a personal one; after all it is the work of the student-athletes who actually gained the team wins.  That being said, no one can argue with the fact that the wrestling team has gone from zero to hero under his leadership.

Congratulations once again to Coach Calixto on a job well done.  At the end of the day people may not remember how many wins you had as a coach, but all the athletes, parents, staff and fans will remember the impact you had on the program and school.
