Take the Coach Nitsch Challenge - Devote yourself to Service, Academics and Wrestling!
In March 2018, we lost our beloved coach and mentor, Rich Nitsch. Coach Nitsch was a retired FBI agent and liked to give out FBI challenge coins to wrestlers to reward them for hard work and to instill confidence. To honor Coach Nitsch this season, we will present custom made KCWC Coach Nitsch challenge coins to wrestlers who have distinguished themselves through Service, Academics and Wrestling. The coin is pictured above. We hope to present these coins to two or three wrestlers at the end of practice every Thursday night.
Please nominate deserving wrestlers (either your child or another wrestler on the team) for either (1) service or kindness to others, (2) accomplishments in the classroom, or (3) achievements on the mat. E-mail nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org In your e-mail tell me a little bit about what your wrestler did to get nominated.
If you have additional questions, email Marc Erickson at email@example.com
