A major contributor to the success of the wrestling programs in the Colville community—from the Basement Boys, to USA wrestling and an outstanding Colville High wrestling program—has been named “Contributor of the Year” in the Northeast A League (wrestling).
Tom Baun, an employee of Fogle Pump & Supply, is a tireless behind the scenes supporter of all things wrestling in Colville.
“A great shout out to Tom, whose commitment is evident in our program’s increased success these last few years,” CHS head coach Randy Cloke said of the honor directed to Baun.
The affable, energetic promoter and supporter of all things wrestling (and football) in Colville, has had much to do with the success of the CHS wrestling program.
“There is a direct correlation between Tom’s commitment and our community in general, and our increased success on the wrestling mat,” Cloke said of Baun’s across the board involvement in wrestling locally. “Strong communities make strong programs.
I offer my sincere, heartfelt thanks to Tom Baun and the entire community of wrestling supporters that have made Colville wrestling all that it is.”
