“Coach Coucke and his squad have worked very hard all season to represent NHS. We are excited to see what the future holds for this young team and program. Coach is really working to put Newaygo Wrestling back on the map, and thus far has proven that his guys will work hard until the end.” -Kristin Melvin, Athletic Director NHS
