The team has won 11 Ivy titles, including the first official Ivy League championship in 1956, and three EIWA titles (in 1911, 1941, and 1978). Jimmy Reed was coach from 1934 to 1964. John Johnston was coach from 1964 to 1994. The Friends of Princeton Wrestling is an alumni group that led the effort to save Princeton Wrestling in the early 1990s. H. Clay McEldowney, Class of 1969, chaired the Friends of Princeton Wrestling during the 1990s and distributed the 50th Anniversary materials in 2017.
