COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - A new sport is coming to Covington Catholic High School for the 2013-14 school year.
Wrestling has been added to CovCath's athletic program. Mr. Dave Johnson has been selected as head coach. Coach Johnson has thirteen years of experience and has coached at the varsity high school level for the last eight seasons contributing to programs at Norwood (OH) High School, Cooper (KY) High School, and most recently as a varsity assistant at Ryle (KY) High School. The addition of wrestling will complement basketball, bowling and the swim/dive programs during the winter sports season and provide another activity for student participation.
About sixty-two students have expressed their interest. “I am excited about the opportunity to be the Colonels wrestling coach. I will work diligently to make this sport a success at CovCath and to represent the school with class and sportsmanship,” noted Coach Johnson.
