Boardwine Named Head Coach at Campbell University
BUEIS CREEK, N.C. - Former Kent State standout Joe Boardwine was named head wrestling coach at Campbell University Thursday. A two-year captain with the Golden Flashes, Boardwine has been regarded as one of the top high school wrestling coaches in the state of Ohio.
"It's a great pick-up for Campbell," Head Wrestling Coach Jim Andrassy said. "Joe is a very intelligent guy. What he lacks in experience at the college level, he will make up for with hard work."
Boardwine was a three-time place winner at the MAC Tournament from 1995-97. He was also a two-time Academic All-MAC and Academic All-District IV selection.
In eight years as a high school coach at Walsh Jesuit, University School and Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy, Boardwine mentored 13 state champions and 15 high school All-Americans. He was named Plain Dealer Coach of the Year in 2003.
