The wrestling program began at North during the 1943-1944 school year.
North won its first Minneaolis conference title during the 1956-1957 season. The Polars have also won conference titles in 1981-1982 , 1991-1992, 1992-1993, 1993-1994, 1994-1995, and 1995-1996.
Although North has never appeared in the State Tournament as a team, the Polars have sent many wrestlers to compete for individual titles. There are no records of any polars winning state individual titles. The most decorated former wrestler at North is John Hughes, class of 1971. Hughes went on to be a member of the 1982 U.S. Greco Roman Wrestling team that competed in the Pan-American games. He won a silver medal. He was also a member of the 1984 U.S. Olympic Greco-Roman Wrestling team.
Jaime Wright is the Polars head coach.
