|Wrestling at Lee High School is in its 35th year of existence. It was
begun by our current coach, Bill Bofinger in 1969. The successful program
can be attributed to the dedication and perseverance of Coach Bofinger as
well as the many parents who have helped keep this program going. Wrestling
is supported by the administrators at Lee High School, who have steadfastly
stood by us. The wrestling program is self-generated and receives no money from the
school or school system.
Last year, in the 2003-2004 season, we had one city champion and one state champion. A full list of Lee High state champions and Runners-Up may be found here.
|This highly successful program has produced many
champions. Lee High has been the Baton Rouge City Champs ten times. In 1971,
Lee High took 7 out of 12 weight classes in the Baton Rouge City Tournament.
Lee High wrestling has produced 77 individual city champs and 6 Outstanding
Wrestlers. We have 17 two time City Champions and 3 three time champions. We
have finished first in the regional tournaments three times with 4 second and 4 third
place finishes. In 1979, five out of twelve weight classes were won by Lee
Wrestlers in the regionals tournament. In 1996, 6 out of 14 weight classes were won by
Lee wrestlers. Lee High School still holds the team scoring record in the regional
tournament. Four Lee High wrestlers were 2 time regional champs and one was a
three time champ.
