1998 Keith Swett  Seymour.gifKeith Swett was born and raised in Marshfield, WI. While in high school, Keith earned letters in football, wrestling and track and served as the sports editor for the student paper. One of his feature articles earned 2nd place in the AP student writing contest for the State of Wisconsin. At UW-LaCrosse, Keith participated in football, wrestling and student government, serving as president of the Blue Key National Honor Fraternity.

In 1973, Keith started his career at Seymour, where he taught English while coaching football, wrestling and power lifting. In 1974, Jim Richie introduced Keith to the international style of wrestling and he became the head wrestling coach at Seymour and part of the Greco-Roman staff for the State of Wisconsin.

The next 24 years were a whirlwind of activity as both Seymour's folkstyle program and the state's Greco-Roman program grew prodigiously. The odyssey continues as once young wrestlers return to coach and the finest of each new generation step out to seek new challenges. Together, like Ulysses, we join "to strive, to seek, to find, and to yield."

With the support of countless families, eager coaches, talented wrestlers and a supportive wife, the following accomplishments have been achieved:

2 conference team titles
4 regional titles
16 Top-10 team finishes at the National Junior Greco Championship
39 Individual regional champions
11 Individual sectional champions
