The man who started the wrestling program at NIACC died Tuesday, March 26, 2013. Kaye Young, who started the wrestling program in the 1968-69 season and coached the Trojans until the program was dropped after the 1975-76 season, was 78.
“He was very supportive,” NIACC wrestling coach Steve Kelly said. “He wasn’t the type of guy that said ‘we won the national title, why haven’t you?’ He was always willing to help. He always told me ‘win or tie, I have your back.’” Young’s Trojans won the NJCAA national title in 1973 as the Trojans claimed five all-Americans and Young was named the NJCAA coach of the year.

The Iowa High School Athletic Association announced new guidelines for pre-season football practices last week in an effort to increase protection of athletes.
According to Clear Lake Head Football Coach Fred Wieck, the new regulations will not result in any major changes for the successful Lion program.
“ I think all rule changes that are for the safety of the kids are good,” said Wieck. “We will have to change very little to abide by the new rule changes.”
Topping the list of new rules is limiting practice to just once daily, but Wieck noted that Clear Lake has not had two-a-day practices for at least 15 years.
