The Don Bosco Dons reigned supreme on the mat in 1985, taking State Championship honors with a win over Racine St. Catherine’s. The meet, held at Marquette University High School, was the first action for the team. The Al Johnson-coached grapplers took seven firsts out of the ten weight classes and eight more Dons earned second place medals. The winners included 112-Dale Petran, 118-Larry Orlikowski, 128-Bill Tessler, 136-Richard Gizelbach, 145-John Labutski, 155-Roland Mroz, and 185-Lance Pedriana. Coach Johnson praised the team for its enviable spirit and cooperation.
