WHEELING, W.Va. – The West Liberty University wrestling team will celebrate 58 years of Hilltopper wrestling here Saturday morning with the inaugural WLU Wrestling Golf Outing, brought to you by the Monteverde Group at Oglebay Resort.
Proceeds from the event will directly benefit West Liberty’s nationally-ranked wrestling program.
Head coach Danny Irwin says a shotgun start is set for 9 a.m. at the Crispin Center Golf Course with check-in from 7:30-8:30. The entry fee of $75 per person or $300 per team covers greens fees, golf cart, an event T-shirt, lunch and drinks. Mulligans can also be purchased on site, limited to one per golfer.
“I want to express my appreciation to the Monteverde Group for their involvement as title sponsor of this inaugural event,” Irwin said. “The Monteverde Group is very much invested in the success of the Ohio Valley which aligns perfectly with the goals we have set for our program.
“We are looking forward to welcoming our wrestling alumni and friends of the program for a fun day of golf at Oglebay. We’re always seeking ways to build community and excitement in our program and this is a great opportunity to do just that.”
Numerous prizes will be awarded throughout the scramble, including closest to the pin, longest drive and longest putt. First place is worth $200 to the winning team and there will also be a 50/50 drawing.
“On behalf of the WLU Foundation, I would also like to thank Jason Haswell and the Monteverde Group for their title sponsorship of this event,” said Angie Hill, executive director of the WLU Foundation. “Jason has been a valued supporter of WLU wrestling and we are grateful to him for making this event a success and for strengthening the WLU wrestling program.”
