TWO Wrestling Coach Jones Submits Resignation
Toledo/Winlock/Onalaska Wrestling Head Coach Pat Jones has resigned after an eight-year career that ended with two State Championship titles during his last season.
Originally a team of Winlock and Toledo students, Onalaska joined the program under Jones’ leadership in 2008 and participation swelled, with 18 students competing in the ’12-’13 season.
During the Mat Classic (state championship) at the Tacoma Dome last month, eight TWO students participated with Rachel Archer and Marco Bautista winning first place in their weight categories and Tony Raupp placing third. Archer herself recently signed a letter of intent to wrestle for Oklahoma State University after her career of championship wins with TWO.
In his letter of resignation to the board, Jones thanked them for the time he was able to spend as head coach and left advice for the future leadership of the program.
