The recent bad fortunes of the school and program didn’t stop alumni from sharing memories from better times over the weekend. The reunion honored the three coaches the program saw from 1969-86, Larry Maynor, Mike Carmony and Marvin Miller. Miller was also the school’s first state champion, winning the 105-pound Class B title in 1972. The school’s only other state champion - Ron Coleman who won at 145 in 1977 - was in attendance as well.
