DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - One of the most decorated wrestlers in Dickinson State University history has been named the North Dakota school’s head coach.

Justin Schlecht won three straight NAIA national championships while wrestling for the Blue Hawks, beginning in 2006. He also holds or shares six school records.

The standout from Whitewood, South Dakota, over the weekend was named to replace 20-year veteran coach Thadd O’Donnell, who resigned. Schlecht had been O’Donnell’s assistant the past four years. Before that he was the wrestling coach at Belle Fourche High School in South Dakota from 2008-11.
