Tom Harbert, the former longtime wrestling coach at St. Vincent College and Latrobe High School, has been selected for induction into the Pennsylvania Wrestling Hall of Fame.
Harbert, who served eight years at St. Vincent and 20 years at Latrobe, will be inducted May 19 at the Ramada Inn in State College in Centre County as part of the hall's Class of 2013.

He previously was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame for Lifetime Service, Shippensburg University Athletic Hall of Fame, Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame, Southwestern Pennsylvania Wrestling Hall of Fame and St. Vincent College Athletic Hall of Fame.
