Apryl Coffman 1st State Wrestling Champ in STA History
Posted on 03/06/2023
With tears in her eyes as the whistle blew, Apryl Coffman became the first girl or boy wrestler in St. Thomas Aquinas High School history to earn first place at the NJ State Wrestling Tournament, held this past weekend in Atlantic City. The focused Coffman delivered with a counter throw off her opponent’s headlock attempt for the fall in 5:18 to win the state title at 185 pounds.

“I’ve been wanting this for a very long time,” Coffman said. “I worked day and night because I knew I had the potential to be amazing this year, especially, so I have to thank my coaches and my people who believed in me like my family and my friends, my teammates."
