Video Story: Wrestling National Champion Nemec Comes to Lake Erie…For Soccer

This Fall semester, Lake Erie College welcomed Paige Nemec (Mantua, Ohio/Crestwood) to it's campus as a highly regarded student and women's soccer player.  Nemec graduated in the top 10 of her class at Crestwood with a 4.04 GPA and was named Student-Athlete of the Year by both the Akron Beacon Journal and Record Courier.  However, while she earned Portage Trail Conference Player of the Year in soccer last season, Nemec is known better for her accomplishments on the wrestling mats.  At Crestwood, she compiled a 115-34 record in wrestling and as a senior she became the first female in Ohio history to qualify for the state tournament.  She is also a three-time National Champion in women's wrestling.
