US Olympic Education Center – Northern Michigan

This special program was implemented in the Fall of 1999, with the intent of offering opportunities to 18-24 year old Greco-Roman wrestlers that have the potential to win World and Olympic medals for the United States.
This program is designed to train young Greco-Roman wrestlers in an intense training environment, with an expert Greco-Roman Coach. The program offers, at the same time, the opportunity to receive a great college education from the University of Northern Michigan. We at USA Wrestling believe that this new program will be one of the keys to our future World and Olympic success. We look to the participants of this program to become our future Olympic Champions in Greco-Roman wrestling.

This University Resident Program works hand-in-hand with our Senior Greco-Roman Resident Program held at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Northern Michigan Program will grow each year and will become one of the most prestigious, most effective Greco-Roman training and education situations in USA Wrestling history.

Marquette, Mich.—United States Olympic Education Center Greco-Roman wrestler Barrett Stanghill is taking over coaching duties for the Northern Michigan University Angry Fish Wrestling Club.

Stanghill, of Philipsburg, Mont., takes the reins after coaches Ryan and Corey Hope graduated from NMU last semester.

The 5-foot-8 NMU freshman competes in the 74- kilogram weight class. He is in his second semester as a resident athlete with the USOEC.

Stanghill, who previously served as an assistant club coach, is taking on his new role with enthusiasm.

“I’m really looking forward to helping these wrestlers improve their wrestling skills,” said Stanghill. “We have a great group of athletes in the club who are eager to learn.”

Assisting Stanghill will be USOEC teammate Toby Erickson of East Helena, Mont. Erickson is a 6-foot-3 junior and competes at 120 kg. Both coaches are past Montana high school state champions.

The Angry Fish team meets from 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday in the USOEC wrestling gym in the Superior Dome.
