Merrill wrestling holds two camps
By Jared Schmeltzer
The first camp was a youth wrestling camp which was held as a summer school option. The camp went from June 12 through the June 14 at the Merrill High School in the wrestling room. Many kids showed up to learn the fundamentals and technique in wrestling, however the camp was geared more for the kids to have fun.
The second camp was held on June 18 and 19 for middle school and high school wrestlers. The wrestlers in attendance got a nice treat as Dennis Hall a world champion and world gold medalist wrestler was one of the feature clinicians. Dennis not only showed the kids great technique, but he talked about what it takes to be successful and why wrestling is so important to him. Dennis told the wrestlers “All the medals and awards I have aren’t important to me. It’s what wrestling has taught me. Wrestling has helped me get through some tough situations. It’s not easy. That’s what wrestling means to me.” Scott Arneson and Scott Jr. were also camp clinicians, both of them are excellent clinicians and a have a passion for the sport. “We are very fortunate to have such high caliber clinicians working with our Merrill wrestlers.” Comments Merrill wrestling coach Brian Suchocki.
