​The Oromocto High School Blues wrestling team recently captured three provincial titles during a competition in their home gym. The Blues won the New Brunswick Interscholastic Athletic Association (NBIAA) banners for senior boys, junior boys and the girls wrestling championship. This major win has only been accomplished twice before, by Oromocto High a decade earlier and by St. Stephen High in 2011. While the Blues won the senior boys and girls by a comfortable margin, they gained the junior boys title by a single point over Ecole Secondaire Nepisiguit of Bathurst. Teacher Andrew Sandford has been the team's head coach for two years after serving as an assistant coach for eight seasons. He is also a former medalist with the Blues.
