Ken, I wanted to update you on Dustin Bell of Paducah Tilghman. Dustin won the 215 finals at our Region 1 tournament yesterday. He was also named Outstanding Wrestler for the 2002 Regional Tournament. He defeated Wells of Caldwell 8-5. Dustin has wrestled him for 3 years (13 matches) and has been unable to defeat him until now. So far this season, Dustin has a record of 40-5. Four of the 5 losses are to Wells. He goes to State on Thursday. We will let you know how he does there. All of Tilghman's younger wrestlers are wanting to attend you camp now! Dustin has been a great role model for them. He has managed to maintain a 4.0 while holding down a job, working out daily, and wrestling all the time. We are very proud of him. The fact that you stress being a scholar-athlete was one of the first reasons we were interested in your camp. We are encouraging the team to attend one of your camps this summer. Also, Troy Ricks came to camp with Dustin last summer. He placed 2nd at 189 at the region meet. Thanks again for everything you do! Debra Bell
