Hello, my name is Ken Maisel and I am the head wrestling coach at University High School. Our team is proud to consistently produce one of the top programs in the State of West Virginia. In February of 2019 five of our University High School wrestlers placed in the state tournament, 1 of which was state finalists!
Winning on the mat may be an important part of wrestling but winning in life is the focus of our development. Our first-class program teaches wrestlers about teamwork, discipline, and a path to success in life!
In 2008 we were proud to move into the new University High School. Thankfully, this new facility included a state-of-the-art wrestling room unequalled in the state of West Virginia, which helps our team train to a high standard of excellence.
While the school bond covered the cost of the wrestling facility, the cost of the floor and wall matting was the responsibility of the wrestling program. Through a rigorous fundraising effort and monies from the Monongalia County school system and the University HS athletic funds, we raised the funds needed (Over $50,000)
It is now 2019 and we are in need of a new mat for our wrestling room. Therefore, we are counting on friends of University High School, like you, to help us purchase this mat through your generous donations. Your contribution will be used to purchase this new state of the art wrestling mat. In an effort to reach our financial needs we have set a goal of $12,000, so we will need everyone’s help! All businesses and individuals who donate will be recognized on a special plaque which will be permanently and proudly displayed in the wrestling room.
Here is some information on the mat:
*The new wrestling mat will be roughly 40’x40’
*Resilite, the world’s largest manufacturer of wrestling mats, has submitted the selected quote.
*Resilite mats combine the most versatility with the greatest performance available.
*Resilite mats meet or exceed the ASTM 355 impact test.
*Resilite mats are coated with Microban. Microban protection is built-in antimicrobial protection that gives products an added level of protection against bacteria, mold, and mildew that can lead to skin infection.
*The resilite quote includes, delivery, customer service support and warranty.
Our wrestlers deserve the very best protection from their wrestling mat allowing us to continue to be one of the top programs in West Virginia. We invite you to attend our wrestling matches and see your donation dollars at work.
