With his 2017 VHSL 5A wrestling state title to pair with the 2015 title, Battista became Broad Run’s 1st 2-time state wrestling champion, and has a career record of 154-34. A season ending injury early last year ended any thought of a 3-peat. The 2-time All-Loudoun Wrestler of the Year (2017, 2015) was one of only two Loudoun wrestlers to place at the prestigious Beast of the East. He is the #1 ranked 170 lb, and #5 ranked pound for pound wrestler in Virginia.
“Michael has worked year round since his freshman year to put himself in the position he is in,” said head wrestling coach Josh Costa. “He is a great student with a 4.0 gpa, and is committed to wrestle for the University of Virginia. He has been a great leader for the Broad Run program and will be extremely missed.”
Please join us in congratulating these fine student athletes!
