Blugold Hall of Fame
Tony Algiers

Algiers was a two-time conference champion and two-time NAIA All-American for veteran Blugold coach Don Parker. He is one of only five Blugold wrestlers who have won more than one conference title, taking the 134-pound championship in both 1981 and 1982. He finished eighth in the '81 NAIA Nationals and fourth the following year. He produced a 29-5 record his junior year but an injury curtailed part of his senior season when he finished 16-9 and placed second in the conference. He finished with a 74-36 career record as a Blugold.

Following his graduation as a biology major in 1985, the Hartford native earned a Pulp and Paper degree from the University of Minnesota in 1985 and his MBA from the University of West Florida in 1989. He also has an EMT Certification from Pensacola Junior College.

Algiers has been a Sales Representative for Buckman Laboratories, Inc. (paper chemicals) in Appleton since 2004. Prior to that he spent 19 years with International Paper (former Champion International Corporation) in Pensacola in various positions within the paper mill ranging from process engineer to lab and paper machine supervisor.

He and his wife Karen (Moore), also a UWEC alum and a registered nurse, have two children: Jackson, 9, and Annabelle, 6.
