The St. Cloud State University wrestling program will salute the accomplishments of John Sundgren on Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2 p.m. with a special “wall ceremony” in the SCSU Wrestling Room, which is located inside the Halenbeck Hall Fieldhouse.
Sundgren won the 157-pound NCAA Division II national championship in 2011 and his national championship banner will be unveiled during the ceremony and will forever be immortalized on the wall of the wrestling room to inspire future champions at SCSU.
Fans will also have the opportunity to watch a brief highlight video of Sundgren’s run to a national title as well as getting his take on his storybook career with the Huskies.
Following the ceremony, all are encouraged to stay for the Husky football game as they take on Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference rival Northern State University at 4 p.m. Concluding the first quarter of play, the 2011 NCAA National Runner-Up Huskies will be introduced.
Prior to the game and after the Sundgren ceremony in the wrestling room, the country band DIAMONDBACK will be playing and food vendors such as Famous Dave’s will be catering for your appetite outside of Husky Stadium.
The“Wall Ceremony” is free and open to the public. Tickets for the football game against Northern State can be purchased at the gate or you can call 1-877-SCSUTIX or 320-308-2137 for more ticket information.
