As a four-year varsity wrestler, Joseph entered this year’s NCS Tournament as the No. 5 seed with a 25-10 record and a wealth of experience to draw on. Even so, his dominant run of success over higher seeds emerged as one of the great storylines of the entire event. Joseph beat the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 4 seeds without giving up a single takedown to claim the NCS championship in his weight class. Joseph had no offensive points scored against him in all three matches.
He advanced to the CIF State Wrestling Championships in Bakersfield, placing in the top 24 in California while proudly representing Convent & Stuart Hall.
The entire Convent & Stuart Hall community congratulates Joseph on his well-deserved opportunity to continue his academic and athletic pursuits at Bellarmine.
