USOEC hosting All-Navy team in wrestling dual

MARQUETTE – The United States Olympic Education Center Greco-Roman wrestling team will host the U.S. All-Navy team in a dual meet at 6 p.m. on Tuesday inside Vandament Arena in an event that is free to the public.

The All-Navy Greco-Roman squad is visiting Northern Michigan University and training with the USOEC wrestlers through March 14 in preparation for the Armed Forces Wrestling Championships on March 16 at McGuire Air Force Base in Nee Jersey.

USOEC head Greco-Roman wrestling coach Rob Herman served in the Navy from 1976-1988, and was the All-Navy wrestling coach from 1983-2010.

“The wrestling world is a close community,” Hermann said. “When the opportunity to have the All-Navy team visit came up, we were happy to have them. The experience will help both teams.”

The All-Navy team is made up of active-duty sailors who serve as goodwill ambassadors through the program.
