Sixth grade to participate in WML wrestling

During the Oct.. 19 Winslow School District Governing Board meeting, the board approved sixth grade students to participate in the White Mountain League wrestling program.

Winslow Junior High School Principal Jim MacLean requested that sixth grade be allowed to participate, as all the other schools involved start at grades lower than that. Presently students have to be in seventh grade to participate.

MacLean asked that it be allowed as a one year trial basis. He explained that the students would be subject to the same academic terms as other students, meaning they would have to maintain their grades and would have to have physicals.

In other action, the board:

* Approved the following resignations, Michael Monroe, computer technician and Nathan Velez, student advisor.

* Approved the winter coaching staff as follows: boys' basketball, Charles Gover, head coach; Rudy Sells, assistant head coach; Ricky Greer, junior varsity coach; and Steve Henling, freshman coach; girls' basketball, Don Petranovich, head coach; Becky Barris, assistant head coach; Jerron Jorden, junior varsity coach; and Julie Thomas, freshman coach; wrestling, Justin Hartman, head coach and Jeff Hartman, assistant head coach.

* Accepted a $180 donation from the American Graphic Enterprises for the WHS cross country team.
