Ste. Genevieve High School wrestling coach Jared Bonnell and assistant wrestling coach Justin Roth were both recently recognized with awards from the Missouri Wrestling Association.
Bonnell was honored as the District 1 Girls Wrestling Coach of the Year, and Roth was recognized as Assistant Coach of the Year.
Ste. Genevieve R-II athletic director Dr. Jeff Nix said that these two individuals could not be more deserving of the honors. As a team, the foundation of their coaching is rooted in their ability to build connections with their athletes.
The pair helped Ste. Genevieve slide smoothly into the new Missouri Stare High School Activities Association girls wrestling landscape.
The Dragons placed third in the inaugural 2018-19 season and 19th in the 2019-20 season. Kaylee Gross made the state finals both years.
