The Badgers wrestling team is planning to bus to Ohio to bid farewell to teammate Eli Stickley. The 21-year old died in a car crash on July 5 in Illinois.
A memorial service is planned for Saturday at Stickley’s home church of Calvary Baptist Church in Bellefontaine, Ohio. The Wisconsin athletics department is providing a bus for student-athletes and staff to attend. All of Stickley’s teammates are expected to make the trip. For those unable to travel to the service, a live video feed will be provided at Upper House on campus beginning at noon.
Stickley was traveling with his girlfriend, Briana Cleveland, to Iowa City to celebrate the engagement of his twin sister, Moriah, when he lost control of his car. He died at the scene. Cleveland was recently released from the hospital.
