Bono Featured Wednesday on ESPNU's National Wrestling Telecast
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- Head Wrestling Coach Chris Bono’s appearance last month at the 2007 U.S. National Wrestling Championships will be televised nationally by ESPNU Wednesday.

Bono claimed his third consecutive U.S. Freestyle National Championship at the Nationals in Las Vegas in early April. ESPNU, a branch of the ESPN Networks which focuses on collegiate athletics, will broadcast a 90-minute show with highlights from the men’s freestyle and men’s Greco-Roman competition.

The show will be aired on a tape-delayed basis and is tentatively set for 7 p.m.

Bono, the fourth seed in the tournament in the 145.5 pound division, has now won four overall U.S. Freestyle titles. He received an automatic bid to the U.S. Olympic Trials on June 9 and 10 in Las Vegas.

Bono defeated second-seeded Jared Frayer, 2-6, 3-1, 1-0 for the title.

Veteran broadcaster Van Stokes will serve as the play-by-play announcer for the telecast. Joining Stokes will be 2000 U.S. Olympic Freestyle Coach and Head Coach at Lehigh University, Greg Strobel, and USA Wrestling National Teams Director, Mitch Hull.
