The East Suburban Catholic Conference has announced that Marist Head Wrestling Coach Mark Gervais will be among 12 inductees in the second class of the ESCC Hall of Fame. The group includes some of the finest athletes, coaches and administrators in the state of Illinois since the ESCC began in 1974.

Under Gervais, from 1984 to 2005, Marist has won 23 straight ESCC Varsity Wrestling Championships. Marist teams in that period have also won:

16 Regional Championships
7 Sectional Championships
1 Team State Championship (1987)
1 Team State Runner-Up (1997)
3 Team 3rd Place Finishes (1985, 1989, 1991)

Members of those teams have won:

10 Individual State Championships
49 Individual State Place Finishes

Coach Gervais is also a member of the Marist Hall of Fame and the Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association (IWCOA) Hall of Fame.

*On a side note Marist was also the 1983 State Champs, making SICA forever change how team champions were crowned.

The program was started in 1981. Pretty historic program for only being in its 25th year.
