By RJ Morgan


Summer is popular time to travel, vacation, hang out with friends and play games. It’s also a time athletes work on their individual skills before the new school year beings.

There are two chances to work on those improvements in two sports over the next month, beginning this weekend in Glenrock. The home of the Herders welcomes athletes from all areas for the annual Central Wyoming Wrestling Camp, June 10-11, wrestling to be held at the high school. 

The camp will be led by Tarkyia Mensah, who is a women’s college wrestling coach in Texas and sister of Olympic Gold Medalist in the Tokyo Olympics. Joining her will be Wyoming Cowboy All-American, Jore Volk along with NCAA qualifier Gabe Willochell to work the boys camp. 

The camp is open to those entering grades 4-12. Cost is $65 per grappler.
