CONGRATULATIONS TO FRANK LIPOLI - FATHER OF THE HOLIDAY DUALS

The Virginia Wrestling Community would like to congratulate Frank Lipoli (VACW Executive Director) for being Honored as an Inductee to the 2022 Hampton Roads Hall Of Fame. His years of selfless work and dedication to promoting wrestling events in southeastern Virginia has been honored as a new 2022 Hall of Fame Member. Frank is the Father of the VACW National Holiday Duals which is the Top National Dual Event for Middle School and Elementary School. Multiple participants in the Holiday Duals have gone on to become college All Americans , Olympic Team Members, Olympic and International Champions.
