Campbell wins first SoCon Title in School history!

What Cary Kolat has been able to do for this program is incredible. 

 

Their TOTAL enrollment is 6,500. When Kolat came on board, they couldn't even field a team. Now they beat ranked teams like App State, Chattanooga and solid teams like SIUE and others. 

 

They qualified 5 guys, with a possible 6 getting an at large bid. While they don't have anyone favored to AA, they have a few guys who can do it. That would be pretty incredible as well.

 

Kolat may very well be getting a call from Maryland/Penn etc. He clearly can build a program from scratch. Imagine if he had a big school's resources? 

 

I hope he doesn't leave for the sake of the Campbell's program, but I wouldn't blame him for progressing in his career. Incredible performance by him and his team.

Awesome job by all involved @Campbell. Cary knows how to run a program and can recruit with the best of them. I'm also curious what he could do at a bigger school (Pitt, VT, Maryland) with more potential.

Kolat is one of the best technicians in coaching. I know that's just one element of coaching, but I've always been very impressed with the way Kolat teaches wrestling. He is one of the few guys who shows you a technique and then shows you how to practice it both with and without a partner (when that makes sense).
