    The National Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum has selected its 2011 state and regional winners of the Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award as part of its Educational Outreach Program. Forty-nine seniors from those states that sponsor high school state wrestling championships have been chosen for the honor.

    The High School Excellence Award is named in honor of the late Olympic and World Champion Dave Schultz. Each award recipient is evaluated on excellence in wrestling, scholastic achievement, character, citizenship, and community service.

    ?A graduate of Palo Alto High School and the University of Oklahoma, Dave Schultz was one of the most respected high school, collegiate, and international wrestlers the United States has ever had,? said Lee Roy Smith, Executive Director of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

    Regarded as a tireless competitor and supreme technician on the mat, Schultz was beloved throughout the world of amateur wrestling for his friendliness and eagerness to lend help or advice to teammates and opponents alike. Schultz passed away in 1996. He was inducted into the sport?s Hall of Fame as a Distinguished Member in 1997.

    Since the Dave Schultz High School Excellence Award?s inception in 1996, the National Wrestling Hall of Fame has recognized 677 student-wrestlers. The national award winner will be chosen from the regional winners and announced on April 21. The winner will attend the annual Hall of Fame Induction ceremony on June 8 and 9 to personally accept the award.

    ?These student-wrestlers are role models in their communities and influence young people in a very meaningful way,? Smith said. ?Statistics show that both male and female students are more likely to stay in school, graduate, and become more productive citizens when they are involved in extra curricular activities and after school programs like sports, theater, debate and music.?

    The five regional winners are:

    Northeast Region ? Nico Megaludis compiled a record of 170-1 winning the State Championship as a Sophomore, Junior and Senior at Franklin Regional High School in Pennsylvania.

    Default Re: Regional Winners for 2011 Dave Schultz Excellence Award Selected

    I love Seth Thomos but I think that it is an absolute shame that Cardwell of Lowell didn't win this award for Oregon. A 4X champ (152 as a FR, 160 as a Soph, 171 as a Jr, and 189 as a Sr.) who went UP a weight this year to see better competition, face a returning state champ at his weight. He's also the first 4X champ who is also a son of a 4X champ, very active in his community with volunteer activities and a great student as well. He won every major tournament in Oregon including the Reesers TOC (going up against all divisions) and he did this all while attending one of the smallest schools in the state.

    Congrats to Thomas though, he is a great kid as well, and I would have killed to have had him in my room or in my program.
