GREELEY, Colo. - The University of Northern Colorado wrestling program will launch the 2006 Wrestling Technique Camp on Sunday, July 9.
The camp features 2006 157-pound NCAA Division I National Champion Ben Cherrington from Boise State. Cherrington was a two-time Pac-10 Conference champion, as well as a four-year national qualifier for the Broncos. In high school, Cherrington won three state championships at Middle Park High School in Granby, Colo.
Also present will be two-time Division I All-American Tom Clum. Clum finished fifth in 2006 and third in 2005 at 133 pounds at the NCAA National Tournament. One of the most prolific wrestlers in Colorado high school history, Clum won three state championships and compiled a remarkable 148-1 career record at Pomona High School in Arvada.
The camp will run through Thursday, July 13 and has three different levels of cost. It costs $295 to stay on campus and $185 to commute. The fee for resident coaches is $160. The on campus fee includes lodging, meals, camp T-shirt, instruction and supervision.
Northern Colorado head coach Jack Maughan will lead the camp. Maughan, a two-time All-American in his collegiate wrestling days, was the 1992 National Coach of the Year, has coached wrestlers to All-America status 45 times and has coached wrestlers to five national championships.
Camp clinicians include Reece Hopkin, who finished 2005-06 ranked 20th in the nation by Intermat/NWCA/USA Today. He became the first Northern Colorado wrestler to garner a Division I ranking.
