SEELEY ON WRESTLING: OJR’s Bolig not one to shy away from a challenge

Owen J. Roberts' Gordon Bolig
By Don Seeley

POTTSTOWN — No one was surprised to see Norristown’s Brett Harner and Owen J. Roberts’ Gordon Bolig advance through their 182-pound bracket and meet in Saturday night’s final of the AAA Southeast Regional.
No one was happier, either, than Bolig.
“It was good to wrestle him,” said Bolig, never one to turn down an opportunity to wrestle a good opponent.
Well, Harner is about as good as it gets. Pound for pound, he’s arguably the best in District 1. He has 187 career wins, a total that could easily be higher if not for Norristown’s demanding schedule. He’s a three-time district champion, three-time regional champion, and three-time state medalist. He’s also nationally ranked.
“I wanted to see what he was like,” Bolig said. “I wanted to see what makes him so good. I sure found out.”
