Four Greens Farms Academy wrestlers—twice as many as a year ago—were honored recently as Academic All-Americans by the National High School Coaches Association.

Recent graduate Nico Provo ’21 joins juniors Caleb Seyfried and Peter Kane, along with freshman Joey Iamunno as receiving the honor, according to GFA coach Jack Conroy.

 "On the GFA Wrestling team we value Academic All Americans the same way we value on-the-mat accomplishments," Conroy said. "These boys walk the walk on the mat and in the classroom."

Three other wrestlers, including senior CJ Shea ’21, junior Neil Gawande and freshman Nate Taylor, were classified as Academic All-American honorable mention selections, Conroy added.

To receive the distinction, athletes must carry a 3.6 GPA on a 4.0 scale and must have demonstrated significant ability on the playing field or mat.
