State Wrestling Champion Malcolm MacDougall '63 Inspires Hillers
On February 4, Malcolm MacDougall '63 talked with the Tower Hill wrestlers about his years on the team and becoming a state champion in 1961 during his sophomore year. As a junior, he finished second in the state and placed third in the state as a senior. While his teammates were honored with his success and Malcolm was justifiably proud, he realized that his last two years were lacking in focus and his best work ethic.
Malcolm had attended homecoming last October for his 50th class reunion. He and his wrestling buddies were impressed when they toured the campus and saw the renovations in Carpenter Field House. Especially impressive was the new wrestling room where Malcolm's name appears on the wall for his 1961 championship.
After his visit at homecoming, Malcolm wanted to share his message with the 2014 wrestling team. The Hillers were extremely happy to hear about his experience and ask questions of a man who accomplished all they aspire to achieve. His positive and encouraging advice was to give their absolute best effort because no one knows if an opportunity will present itself again in the future.
