Huntley High School’s B.J. Bertelsman has been voted the 2017 Northwest Herald Wrestling Coach of the Year. Bertelsman capped his sixth year at the helm of the program with a number of accomplishments, including the team’s best-ever fifth-place finish at the Dvorak Tournament, first Fox Valley Conference dual title, first regional title and a program-best five state qualifiers.
“Winning regionals was cool, I kind of thought we could have done that and it was very possible. But I think sectionals when we got our fifth guy in (to state) it was pretty cool to see,” Bertelsman said.
Bertelsman teaches biology and botany/horticulture at HHS.
In addition, 10 HHS wrestlers were named to the newspaper’s All-Area Team. Read more about that accomplishment on www.nwherald.com.
