PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Plymouth State College has named a new wrestling coach for the 2002-03 season.

The newest member of the Panther staff is Donald Perrin, a former standout wrestler for PSC in the mid-1990s. He takes over the PSC program from
Dave Carlson, who left after seven successful seasons to pursue personal goals.

Perrin has been the assistant wrestling coach at Plymouth Regional High School the past five years. He helped the Bobcats to New Hampshire State
championships in 2001 and 2002 and was selected N.H. Assistant Wrestling Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2001.

“It is truly an honor to be the head coach at your alma mater, and I am thrilled to join the PSC staff,” said Perrin. “Coaching at Plymouth High has been
an excellent experience for me, but I am excited at the challenge of coaching at the college level. Coach Carlson has done an outstanding job at PSC for
several years, and I hope to pick up from where he left off.”

A 1996 PSC graduate with a degree in Computer Information Systems, Perrin was a three-time All-New England wrestler for the Panthers, placing in the
top six at the New England Championships in ’92, ’94 and ’95.

“We are very happy to welcome Donald Perrin to the PSC coaching staff,” said PSC athletic director John P. Clark. “He is an outstanding young man
with a passion for wrestling who has been involved with the PSC community for over a decade. We are very confident that our wrestling program is in good
hands and will continue to have success under Coach Perrin’s leadership.”

Perrin inherits a Panther team that finished 9-7 in dual matches in 2001-02 and placed fourth out of 15 teams at the New England Championships.
