Saint Mark’s High School has a Wrestling National Champ and HER name is Addie Till. Till stood on top of the podium at 118 pounds in Salisbury, Maryland on May 6 as the MAWA Eastern National Champion. Hard to believe it was just three years ago when the Spartan freshman decided to get involved in the sport of wrestling. “When I found my love for the sport of wrestling, I had been coming off a back injury and went to my younger brother’s wrestling practice and saw a few girls out on the mat,” Till said. “I was so interested and figured I could try it out since I had been a high-level gymnast for the past 10 years of my life and had the strength to compete mentally and physically on the mat.”

Till, just a freshman, became the first female Varsity wrestler in Spartan history this past year, wrestling at 113 pounds for the historic program. She won her first match as a Saint Mark’s Varsity wrestler this season and the achievements continued. Till won the Girls Wetzel Classic and the Girls Halloween Havoc while placing 4th at the first female Beast of the East High School Wrestling Tournament this past Winter. She placed 8th at the Independent Conference Championships in 2023, making her a 2x Conference place winner going back to 2022 when Till was just an eighth grader.


There has been a recent uptick in female wrestlers at the High School level and here in Delaware. The first official Girl’s Beast of the East tournament took place this past Winter at the University of Delaware and highlighted some of the best female wrestlers on the East Coast. Other Delaware female wrestlers, Caravel’s Natalie Radecki and Delaware Military Academy’s Alyssa Mahan each won Beast of the East championships in 2022. Till will look to get back to work in 2023-24 and improve on her skill set. “I always have to better my best. My ultimate goal is to be the first female in Delaware to place at States,” Till said.
