Class AA Wrestling Coach of the Year!
Randy Zimmer, who stepped down as Milaca wrestling coach at the end of this past season, was named Minnesota Class AA Wrestling Coach of the Year at the Dave Bartelma Hall of Fame Banquet Saturday at Benson. Zimmer was also named Section 7AA Coach of the Year this season. In his 24 seasons as head coach Zimmer received section coach of the year honors eight times. He was also Class AA Wrestling Coach of the Year in 2000. “Minnesota is loaded with great wrestling coaches and to be chosen coach of the year was very nice,” said Zimmer. “But, even more special was how our team put it together this season and ended up winning the state consolation championship.” Joel Skillings of Minneota was honored as Class A Coach of the Year and Joe Block of Prior Lake was honored as Class AAA Coach of the Year. Bill Schmidt of Winona presented the award to Zimmer.
