St. John's Wrestling entered the 2020 SPC Championships as the heavy favorite. The Mavericks were already back-to-back Prep State and State Duals champions, and were sending a program record of eight wrestlers to the Prep Nationals the following week. While they had won the previous four SPC championships, they could not just show up and win. They would need a total team effort against an improved field that had an advantage with a small number of teams. The scoring system for a small meet such as SPC did not necessarily favor the Mavericks, winners of six SPC and five state championships. With only nine total teams competing, less points would be spread out amongst the field, and one or two teams could garner most of the tallies. Entering the finals those two teams were St. John's and Episcopal. In the recent Texas Prep State meet for comparison, there were about three times as many schools in the mix and St. John's won going away, 90.5 points ahead of 6th place Episcopal. The SPC meet left nothing to chance for St. John's. Episcopal was much improved from a year ago when St. John's had a 90 point lead going to the finals. Today it was only 20.
