Golfing with Wolves Classic
About the Wolfpack Wrestling Club

The goal of the WWC Golfing With Wolves Golf Classic is to raise money specifically for the Club’s Resident Athlete Program. The Resident Athlete Program is comprised of elite wrestlers whom the WWC coaching staff has recruited to live in the Triangle and train at the WWC Regional Olympic Training Center. This program is designed to provide the coaching, training environment, and financial support necessary for these individuals to compete for and win Olympic and World Championships.  Having a designated Regional Training Center where our NC State student athletes can train with and become the best wrestlers in the world has become the standard for all of the elite wrestling programs throughout the country, and has helped propel NC State Wrestling to being a perennial Top-5 program.

Current Resident Athletes at the WWC are Nick Gwiazdowski, Tommy Gantt, Timmy McCall, Quinton Godley, and new additions this year Mike Macchiavello, and Kevin Jack. These wrestlers are former NCAA Champions and All-Americans and are some of the top athletes in the world. The WWC currently has 3 wrestlers on the USA World Freestyle Teams:  Nick Gwiazdowski, World Bronze Medalist, who is competing in the Sr. World Championships October 20-28 in Budapest, Hungary, and Hayden Hidlay, and Mike Macchiavello, who are competing at the U23 Age Group World Championships in November in Romania.  And, for the first time ever, the Wolfpack Wrestling Club had the highest club point total at the U23 World Team Trials, just ahead of Ohio State. We are very proud of these young men as ambassadors of NC State Wrestling on and off the mat!
