Transcript of Clemson Wrestling

The Clemson Wrestling Program Wade Schalles (light blue) is shown here demonstrating a move called the spladle. Schalles is credited with inventing this move, along with many others. Wade Schalles was the head wrestling coach at Clemson from 1977 to 1983. During Schalles's career he accumulated more wins and more pins than any other amateur wrestler in history. Here Sammie Henson is shown winning his 2nd National Championship for Clemson. Henson's career record at Clemson was 71-0. He later went on to win the gold medal in the 2000 Olympics. Noel Loban was Clemson University's first national champion in any individual sport. In 1984 Noel won the bronze medal in the Olympics. Both Loban and Henson are in Clemson's athletic Hall of Fame After placing 7th as a team in the 1994 NCAA tournament, the Clemson Wrestling team was disbanded. In 2003, the Clemson club wrestling team was formed. Since then it has competed in the NCWA against many other teams who lost their division 1 status. The club is currently working with the Clemson Wrestling Alumni Association in an effort to give the program financial stability and the opportunity to compete nationally. Our ultimate goal is to raise support for wrestling in the Clemson community and to ultimately reinstate its status as division 1 program.
