Wrestling camp slated for July

June 2, 2004

Top college wrestlers will be on hand this summer for the inaugural Tonganoxie Camp of Champions.

The clinic, which will run July 6-8, will bring wrestlers from Nebraska-Kearney, as well as Wamego High coach Brad Ewing.

Jeff Sylvester, an NCAA champion with UNK this year, and Gabe Re, a New Mexico state champ and 2002 national qualifier for the Lopers, instruct Tonganoxie youth.

THS coach Jeremy Goebel, who also was a grappler at Nebraska-Kearney, will head the summer camp.

Tonganoxie assistant Scott Underwood also will instruct at the camp, which is open to wrestlers ages 5 to 13 and 14 to 18.

"It's kind of like a satellite camp," Goebel said, noting all the Nebraska-Kearney influence. "We're going to do it every year.

"Depending on how many kids we get, we'll bring in as many wrestlers as we have to."

The younger group will attend from 9 p.m. to noon each day of the clinic, while the older group's session will be from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The clinic will be conducted in the THS multi-purpose center, which is just south of the THS football field.
