NC Loses Two Great Servants of Our Sport

The world of North Carolina wrestling lost two legends this week with the passing of Arlene Lail and Jerry "Mousey" Daniels.

Arlene Lail was one of the foundations of all that is North Carolina Wrestling. Her 40+ years of service to our sport were remarkable and she shaped  many lives in all she did.
Jerry "Mousey" Daniels was another individual who was larger than life to so many all across North Carolina.  Jerry was an outstanding high school and college wrestler, and went on to lead the NC State Wolfpack for seven years as head coach.
Between the two there was over one hundred years of service to the sport of wrestling! Few individuals have touched lives as they did. They will be sorely missed, and remembered forever.
