Williams Resigns as Wrestling Coach at Lawrence North
August 17, 2011By Rich Torres of VYPE MAGAZINE - Central Indiana
Jared Williams, the head wrestling coach at Lawrence North High School, has resigned, according to a press release sent out by athletic director Grant Nesbit on Tuesday.
Williams, who compiled a 101-34 record in his six years with the Wildcats from 2005-11, cited his desire to spend time with his family, including his two young children.
He leaves the head coaching ranks as the only coach in IHSAA history to take two different schools to the IHSAA Team Wrestling State Finals.
In 2005, his Avon team was the IHSAA state runner-up, finishing behind, ironically, the school he would take over the next year – Lawrence North.
In 2008 he led the Wildcats back to the state finals, finishing in the Final Four. This past season, the Wildcats finished as state runner-up to Perry Meridian.
His teams won the MIC Conference title the past four years and had twelve state finalists, including three state champions during his six-year stint as head coach.
"Our school has a great academic and athletic reputation, and we began accepting students from outside the district this year. We think that with the open enrollment, we can really make this ‘the’ place to be in Central Indiana for families that are serious about academics and wrestling.”
