Chris Skretkowicz named assistant coach at VMI



LEXINGTON, Va.- The VMI wrestling program and head coach John Trudgeon has announced that Chris Skretkowicz, a three-time CAA champion while at Hofstra, has been named the team's newest assistant coach.

"We're very excited about Chris coming in and helping us," said Trudgeon. "He has a wonderful background, and he is definitely going to be a hard worker. He spent last year coaching at the high school level, and we're very excited to have both he and his wife Megan coming on board."

Skretkowicz certainly brings a prestigious wrestling background to the Institute, having twice been named as an All-American while wrestling at 197 pounds. His 140-24 career record was accompanied by a perfect 26-0 mark against CAA opponents in his four years in the league. He qualified for the NCAA Championships each of his four seasons, and will look to help train the Keydet wrestlers to do the same.

"I'm very honored to be given the chance to coach at VMI," said Skretkowicz. "I'm excited to begin working with the team and assisting Coach Trudgeon to help VMI reach their goals on the mat."

A 2005 graduate of Hofstra, Skretkowicz has spent the last year as an assistant coach at his former high school, Wallkill Valley Regional (N.J.). While competing there, Skretkowicz was a three-time State Placewinner, including a State Champion his junior year and a six-time Wrestling All-American, while competing in Greco, Freestyle and Folkstyle.

In his four years at Hofstra, Skretkowicz also earned CAA Tournament Outstanding Wrestler honors as a senior, along with CAA Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman. Among individual tournaments, Skretkowicz was a three-time placewinner at The Midlands, while also capturing the 197 lb. championship at the 2004 Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational.
