Trojans wrestling coach receives national recognition

Trojans coach Craig Rieger was honored before the wrestling started on Wednesday with a national award.

Each year the National Wrestling Coaches Association selects one coach from each state for this honor.

The association recognized Rieger for his efforts last year in coaching his team to the state title and they voted him the Nevada state wrestling coach of the year.

Rieger was surprised by the recognition.

“I really didn’t see this one coming,” he said. “I know I got it because I beat a team that had won the title six times in a row, but really I know little else on how I got it.”

IN SEASON: Carrots, a kaleidoscope of colors, sizes and shapes

Carrots are a pretty inexpensive vegetable to buy at the grocery store, and for this reason many gardeners do not grow them. I like to grow them because they come in beautiful varieties and can fit easily between other vegetables in the garden. That space would not be used otherwise so I like to make good use of it.
