Marauders Pin Down New Coach

Following the retirement of former McMaster Marauders wrestling coach Nick Cipriano, an extensive search for a new coach was launched. On Wednesday morning that search came to an end.

Cipriano led the McMaster wrestling program for 36 years but now a new era begins with Canadian National Team veteran Cleo Ncube as the new leader.

Ncube is originally from Zimbabwe but was raised in Kingston, Ontario. He has also spent a lot of time in Montreal at the Montreal Wrestling Club where he trained. Ncube joined the McMaster coaching staff last year working with the varsity team as well as Hamilton Wrestling Club. During that time, he was able to take in the wrestling scene in the Steel City.

The new coach has a resume that would impress anybody in the wrestling community. He wrestled at 70-kilos for the Canadian National team and is a three-time Senior Canadian Champion, a two-time CIS champion and a Pan-Am Games silver medalist.

While Ncube has big shoes to fill in the departing Cipriano, he is up for the job. “It’s a little overwhelming right now but it’s a new and exciting experience.” While taking over the Mac program, he will also assume the head coaching position with the Hamilton Wrestling Club that operates in partnership with McMaster.

Ncube inherits a program that won OUA silver and U Sports bronze in 2017 on the men’s side of the mat.

Ncube will begin to build his support staff but while he does so he can lean on long-time McMaster stalwarts Kevin MacLellan and Sheldon Francis. Also available to him are recent graduates Ahmed Sharniya and Jason Buckle who are both training with the program and working with current team members.

The Marauders will host the McMaster Wrestling Invitational on Saturday November 4th, 2017.
