HAMLER — Patrick Henry will need a fill a second winter sports coaching opening as Xavier Dye has stepped away from the Patriot wrestling program after two seasons.
Dye had been fighting a numbers crunch. In 2019, the Patriots finished seventh in the Northwest Ohio Athletic League. Patrick Henry was eighth in the league in 2020.
Dye did take two wrestlers to back-to-back state wrestling tournaments. Wil Morrow placed third at 220 pounds and TJ Rhamy placed fourth at 160 pounds. Both earned nods to the 2020 tournament before the state tournament was called off.
“I want to thank Xavier for his commitment to our wrestling program the past few seasons,” said Patrick Henry Athletic Director Ben George. “He did a great job of representing our wrestling program and creating a competitive environment for our student-athletes. I wish Xavier the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
