Limestone College Director of Athletics Mike Cerino has announced that Head Wrestling Coach Ben Stehura will be leaving Limestone College and that Assistant Coach Trent Goodale (photo at right) will assume head coaching duties. Stehura recently accepted the head coaching position at NCAA Division I’s Cleveland State University in Ohio. Goodale has been an assistant coach for the Saints since 2006.

“We want to thank Coach Stehura for the solid foundation he built for the Saints wrestling program as he moved Limestone into the national picture in college wrestling,” commented Cerino. “The position at Cleveland State was a tremendous opportunity for Coach Stehura and his family and we wish him success at his alma mater.”

Prior to coaching at Limestone, Stehura was an assistant coach for Cleveland State’s nationally-ranked program from 2001-2003. Stehura helped the Vikings to a second-place finish in the prestigious Eastern Wrestling League and a top 25 national ranking. He also helped coach ten national qualifiers. In May of 2003, he completed his master’s degree in education at Cleveland State.

Following his stint at Cleveland State, Stehura was named the first coach in the history of Limestone’s wrestling program. He coached All-American Dan Scanlan to the 2008 NCAA Division II 184-pound title, and All-American heavyweight Trey Moss to an eighth place finish at the 2008 national tournament. Stehura also guided the Saints to their first ever national ranking last season and an impressive overall record of 15-4-1.

Stehura earned his bachelor of science degree from Lock Haven University in December 2000.

Goodale, a native of Osage, Iowa, attended the University of Iowa where he earned a bachelor of arts in communication studies. He was a four-year letterwinner for the Hawkeyes and was a 2004 NCAA Division I national qualifier. He was also a two-time Fila Junior All-American in freestyle.

Goodale’s prior coaching experience includes volunteering as an assistant coach during college with the Iowa City West High School and working several University of Iowa Athletic Camps.
