Wrestling: Local greats on hand at Newton camp

I've never been a big fan of summer wrestling camps, most aren't nearly worth the money spent, but there's a good one coming to Newton High School in a few weeks.

Former New Jersey state champions Roman Fleszar and Dan Vallimont will be instructors on two of the five-day long camp that runs July 15-19. College of New Jersey coach Joe Galante and SIR Wrestling Club founder Shawn Hall are also scheduled to appear.

Fleszar, a recent inductee to the Region 1 Hall of Fame, was a two-time state champion at Kittatinny Regional High School and a two-time NCAA Division I All-American at Hofstra University. He currently serves as an assistant coach at Columbia University.

Vallimont also was a two-time state champion at Jefferson Township High School and a two-time All-American at Penn State. He's now an assistant coach at Hofstra.

The camp is open to grades 4-12 and registration fee is $200 per family. For information, or to register, contact Newton coach Eric Bollette via e-mail at
