Litchfield Wrestling Club will honor Scott Shepersky, a long-time contributor to the local wrestling program, with induction into its Hall of Fame during the Dassel-Cokato/Litchfield wrestling meet Thursday.

Shepersky’s involvement with Litchfield wrestling has touched nearly all aspects of the program, beginning when his career started as a five-year-old wrestler in the youth program.

Shepersky was a two-time Litchfield Invite champion, in addition to winning a title at the Burnsville Invitational during his prep career. He wrestled to conference championships in 1996 and 1998, and won section titles three consecutive seasons, from 1996-1998, along with berths in the state tournament.

He took third place at the state tournament as a junior, then won the state championship as a senior in 1998.

While no longer wrestling, Shepersky has stayed active in the Litchfield and Dassel-Cokato/Litchfield youth and high school programs as a volunteer coach, working at tournaments and helping with program fundraisers.

“Scott has continued to give back to the Litchfield wrestling program in numerous ways,” the Litchfield Wrestling Club said in announcing his hall of fame induction. made himself available to do whatever is needed and is a valuable asset to the Litchfield wrestling program.”
