Attention Wrestling Fans!
Fans of high school wrestling have a special night to look forward to this year — the second District 10 Legends Night at Thiel College on Saturday, July 28 in the Rissell-Beeghley Gymnasium at 7:15 p.m. Wrestlers will lace up their shoes one more time with ages 19 to 51 years of age. The District 10 Legends Night was created by Thiel College Associate Director of Admission and assistant wrestling coach Jeff Linn ’02.
This exciting night will feature NCAA All-Americans, legendary coaches, former state champions and place winners from Pennsylvania District 10, which includes Crawford, Erie, Mercer, Venango and Warren counties, on the same mat on the same night. The event will also include three former Thiel College NCAA All-Americans, Corey Brown ’12, Kyle Brown ’07 and Corey Murphy ’07, competing at “home” one last time. All proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships at D10 Legends Night will benefit coach Eric Witherite, who was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), and his family. Eric and his wife, Amy (sister of Aaron Skbrin ’01), currently reside in Erie, Pa.
If you are unable to attend the event and still would like to contribute to the Witherite Family, please contact Jeff Linn at 724-456-4053 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
