The Portsmouth Abbey School wrestling program encourages students to reach their potential in the classroom and on the mats, fostering healthy respect for coaches, officials, opponents, and the game itself. Because this sport demands an individual commitment to hard, physical work, we train our athletes in both physical and mental aspects of wrestling.
The school is located on a beautiful 525-acre campus along Narragansett Bay, just a few miles from Newport, RI. For over 90 years, the Portsmouth Abbey`s liberal arts curriculum has prepared students for lives of significance and purpose. This education is grounded in the Western intellectual tradition and teaches students to solve problems, communicate ideas, work together, and innovate.
Portsmouth Abbey School ranks among the top 20 boarding schools (out of 307 schools) for: SAT Test Scores.
I wrestled over my weight and made the best of every match and ended up qualifying for Nationals.
The experience that I had at the Abbey were amazing. I came with minimum skills, but felt nothing like it. Thank you for the fun practices guys!”
I now play lacrosse at Salve Regina University, as a Middle, I attack the field with the Wrestling Mind set that Coach Mike taught me.

Abbey Wrestling gave me so much…It taught me everything about self-control and discipline, patience and sportsmanship. While it is technically an individual sport, I was never on the mat alone.
I compete in any sport I play, wrestling was my second sport I was top 17 in the nation, it taught me to dig deep and be the best I can, I love lacrosse and will continue to bring it all to the field!
“Wrestling came into my life while I was just a freshman at the Abbey. I loved it: the adrenaline, tough work, and most of all, the camaraderie. Being a part of Abbey wrestling and serving as a captain of the team was an honor, and my Abbey career would not have been the same without it.”
Many people have helped shape my life, but none like Coach Mike, he has prepared me for wrestling at Elmira College beyond my dreams. I leave the Abbey with 13 years of wrestling, and over the last 4 years a record of 136 Wins with 100 by Pin.
“Four years of wrestling practice and matches prepared me for my next step at the Air Force Academy. I can not thank Coach Mike and all my team mates for pushing me and elevating my wrestling and self.”
