NJCAA West Central District 2012 Wrestling Championships

February 11th, 2012

President’s Welcome On behalf of Neosho County Community College and its Board of Trustees I bid you welcome to the West/Central District Wrestling Tournament. NCCC is proud to host this event for 2012 during our 75th anniversary year. Neosho County Community College is experiencing one of the best years in its long history. With the launching of a new $8.1 million campus at Ottawa, KS, and with the expansion of new programs such as Occupational Therapy Assistant, Surgical Technology, and Energy Management NCCC is experiencing record growth at all of its campuses. In fact, NCCC has grown from 18 out of 19 community colleges in 2003 in terms of credit hours produced, to 10th by the end of 2012. With this growth, the College has begun a 10year plan to revitalize the Chanute campus. Fall 2011 saw the completion of an $800,000 simulation hospital and business center in Rowland Hall. March 1, 2012 the College breaks ground on a $500,000 sports complex for softball and youth soccer. This spring will also see $490,000 in improvements to the College gymnasium and Student Union featuring a new gym floor, bleachers in the mezzanine, and renovated bathrooms. In the coming years NCCC will revitalize Stoltz Hall, it’s main classroom building, with new science labs and renovated classrooms. New buildings are planned for greater practice and activity space for athletics, improved student services, and a greatly expanded fine and performing arts center. It is an exciting time at Neosho County Community College. I wish all of the participants good luck. I am hopeful that we will see some exciting injury-free matches! Enjoy the tournament! Brian Inbody, Ed. D. President

From that era one wrestler to date, Billy Johnson, has been inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame. From there coach Petterson went to NCAA D.1 Northern Illinois U. for one year as Asst. Head Coach. The Huskies that year produced two national tournament qualifiers. One of those qualifiers was Pettersons workout partner, senior T.C. Dantzler, who just retired after the most recent Olympic Games where Dantzler was a member of Team USA in Greco Roman in Beijing. The next college coaching stint for Coach Pete before arriving at NCCC was as Head Coach at Colorado Northwestern CC. In his three years there the teams produced two All Americans and nine national qualifiers. Also during this time Coach Petterson was voted Region XVIII Coach of the Year. Currently at NCCC his teams have produced two Top 8 national tournament finishes, one National Champion, two national finalists, ten All Americans, and numerous Academic All Americans, including 5 this year. Aside from his coaching duties Petterson serves as a professional Physical Education instructor at NCCC. Coach Pete is married to wrestling enthusiast Linda Petterson and is the proud parents of four children: Chase (28), Jessica (24), Thain (22), and Jena (13). When coach and his wife are not at wrestling events, they enjoy yard work, gardening, NFL football, hunting/fishing, and various other activities with their family.
