Baseball-Wrestling Banquet

The 2nd annual Indian Hills Baseball-Wrestling Banquet will be held Thursday, October 27th at Bessie's Barn in Centerville, IA.

The annual event serves as an opportunity to highlight the accomplishments of the Indian Hills Baseball and Men’s and Women’s Wrestling programs while connecting with the student-athletes as they prepare to enter a new season of competition in Centerville. This year’s banquet will be headlined by former Indian Hills football standout and coach, Athletic Director, Dean of Services, and Indian Hills Athletics Hall of Famer, Ron Oswalt.

The women’s wrestling program is coming off a season that saw the program capture its second consecutive team and dual national championships in February. The Warriors also claimed three individual national champions and 13 All-Americans.

The men’s wrestling program capped an impressive second season with an eighth-place showing at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship in March. The Warriors took home five All-American honors and five National Wrestling Coaches Association (NWCA) Scholar All-Americans.

Indian Hills baseball posted a 37-17 record a season ago and finished as runners-up in the NJCAA Region XI Tournament, making a run to postseason championship game one year after reaching the 2021 JUCO World Series in Grand Junction, CO.

Oswalt was a two-year member of the then-Centerville Falcons in 1964 and 1965, leading the team in rushing each season while earning all-conference honors. Oswalt continued his playing career at Drake University before being drafted to play in the NFL with the likes of the Minnesota Vikings and Cleveland Browns.

Following a professional career, Oswalt returned to Centerville where he served as an assistant football coach from 1971-73. Oswalt later served as Indian Hills’ Athletic Director from 1988-93 where he led the Warriors to new heights.
