The Cloverdale High School wrestling team welcomed Shelby Wilson to the Cloverdale wrestling room Monday. Wilson visited the Clovers to help them prepare for the upcoming Sectional tournament.
Wilson was a 1960 Olympic Champion in Rome, a two-time NCAA runner-up while wrestling for Oklahoma State University. During his wrestling career, Wilson lost only five times; three times in high school and two times in college. Coach Wilson was the head wrestling coach at the University of Colorado for seven years and is now a part of the Indiana University coaching staff.
"Coach Wilson also spent a number of years working with the Owen Valley wrestling team and that's where I got to know him," CHS head coach Steve Livingston said. "This was a great honor for the Cloverdale wrestling team and coaches. I hope Coach Wilson's visit was both enjoyable and inspiring for our wrestlers."
Cloverdale will compete at the Avon Sectional this Saturday beginning at 8:30 a.m.
