Louden Swain: You never took a night off to see me wrestle before. They'll dock you for that. Elmo: Hey, kid - money ain't everything. Louden Swain: It's not that big a deal, Elmo. I mean, it's six lousy minutes on the mat, if that. Elmo: You ever hear of Pele? Louden Swain: Yeah, he's a, a soccer player. Elmo: A very famous soccer player. [pause] Elmo: I was in the room here one day... watchin' the Mexican channel on TV. I don't know nothin' about Pele. I'm watchin' what this guy can do with a ball and his feet. Next thing I know, he jumps in the air and flips into a somersault and kicks the ball in - upside down and backwards... the goddamn goalie never knew what the **** hit him. Pele gets excited and he rips off his jersey and starts running around the stadium waving it around his head. Everybody's screaming in Spanish. I'm here, sitting alone in my room, and I start crying. [pause] Elmo: That's right, I start crying. Because another human being, a species that I happen to belong to, could kick a ball, and lift himself, and the rest of us sad-assed human beings, up to a better place to be, if only for a minute... let me tell ya, kid - it was pretty goddamned glorious. It ain't the six minutes... it's what happens in that six minutes.

Union Pines Wrestling

“Second is Not the Standard”


Having a good spring and summer pays big dividends in the winter when wrestling season officially begins. The last few years our wrestlers have cashed in these investments in the post season when it really counts. After we left Ohio last summer several rising seniors expressed their disappointment that they would not be able to return the following summer to “Do Work” and get better as wrestlers and young men. The UPHS wrestling coaching staff has put together another great camp schedule for our wrestlers. We are extremely excited about the opportunity and want to get you the information as soon as possible. We need attendance commitments as soon as possible in order to finalize transportation costs and any changes in costs. Please email Coach Bartram at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. as soon as you can commit to attending. Camp attendance is open to rising freshmen and some rising 8th graders.

Our Camp Participation Limit has been met! Due to transportation and lodging constraints in Cleveland, only 14 wrestlers can attend the Cleveland portion of camp before moving on to Urbana, OH for the second portion of camp. Coach Vondruska will notify the 14 wrestlers that have been confirmed for the trip. If you have already registered and are on the "cut list" Coach Vondruska will contact you and we will refund your money UNLESSS...you would like to attend the second half of camp in Urbana. Coach Hull has generously volunteered to take 7 wrestlers to Jeff Jordan's camp to link up with our other 14 wrestlers. If you are interested in attending please confirm with Coach Bartram immediately and begin the payment process. This portion of the camp is $400 which includes travel costs. The itinerary for Coach Hull's crew is in blue, below the camp schedule. The listed packing list is applicable.

Costs and Deadlines

Total Camp Cost: $675

1 May - $350 (total) is due

14 June -  $325 (balance) is due

Cost includes: fuel, lodging, meals, and camps

We are relying on parents to help drive as well as ‘loan’ their vehicles for the trip. Last year the Ambrose and VanCleave families generously loaned us their vehicles, trailer, and in the case of Mr. VanCleave, himself as a driver/chaperone. If you are interested in helping out, please let us know.

By getting the camp information out early we hope that it enables a maximum number of our wrestlers to attend. We have set up online registration and payment for the camp. For information on last summer’s trip click the link to Viking Voyage II in the main menu on the left of our home page.
