Courtad is picked for

Ohio U.'s Hall of Fame

Aurora High graduate Tim Courtad has been chosen for enshrinement in the Kermit Blosser Ohio University Athletics Hall of Fame.

In 2000, he won a Mid-American Conference championship at heavyweight, earning MAC all-tournament team honors and becoming an All-American by placing fifth in the NCAA Championships.

His effort that year was one of the best single-season performances for the Bobcats wrestling program. He served as team captain and was named the team's most valuable player.

He also placed second in the 2000 University Freestyle National Championships, third in the 1999 University Freestyle Nationals and seventh in the 2000 U.S. Freestyle Nationals following his Ohio career.

The induction cermony will take place Oct. 7 at the Alumni Awards Gala in the Grand Ballroom of the Baker University Center.
