  • 2016 Summer Wrestling Camp

    Posted by Dan Anderson at 6/10/2016


    Grade 2-6 wrestlers

    The 2nd Annual and 2016 Fun in the Sun Wrestling camp was held Tuesday June 7-Thursday June 9 at Albany's North Park. Over 45 wrestlers participated in the 3 day camp. Wrestlers from Albany, Avon,
    Holdingford, and Sartell enjoyed the beautiful weather learning various wrestling techniques.

    On Tuesday the wrestlers were taught various wrestling techniques by Albany Alum Nick Mergen. Mergen just completed his redshirt season wrestling for the NDSU Bison. For the Albany Huskies, Nick was a 2-time state placewinner finishing 5th in 2014 and 3rd in 2015. He currently holds the Albany wrestling school record for most takedowns in a season (185) and wins in a season (43).


    Alumni Nick Mergen discusses the importance of a 3 sport athlete with wrestlers grade 7-12. (Mergen was a 3 sport All-State athlete for the Albany Huskies.)

    Technique on Wednesday and Thursday was taught by Jay Hildreth. Hildreth just completed his senior season wrestling for the SCSU Huskies. The Huskies were Back to Back NCAA Division II National Wrestling Champions in 2015 and 2016. Hildreth was a 2x All-American for the Huskies.

    Parents helped grill and serve Hot Dogs and Hamburgers after the grade 2-6 session. On Thursday Godfather's Pizza was served. After both sessions wrestlers also received Root Beer Floats. Over 10 gallons of root beer along with cups, spoons, and straws were all graciously donated by the Albany A&W and ice cream was donated by Teal's.
