Reed’s girls wrestlers helping sports grow in Northern Nevada


SPARKS, Nev. (KOLO) – ‘At first we were the girls who were only wrestling boys. So we started wrestling girls and we realized, hey, we can beat girls,’ said Reed senior wrestler Mariah Ortiz.

Check out the details. Details given.

What started as interest from a couple of freshman wannabe wrestlers four years ago snowballed into something big at Reed High School.

The Raiders boast one of the strongest girls wrestling teams in the region and three talented seniors are a big reason why the sport is growing in Northern Nevada. But Nora Ochoa, Mariah Ortiz, and Morgan Norris all made their marks on Reed’s program in different ways.

‘I played football for a while and (Coach) Klapp came out to the field and said ‘you’re not really growing much, why don’t you try it out on the mat?’, Ochoa remembered.

Marilyn Newton: The Matriarch of the Reno Rodeo

Lots of things have changed in the past 55 years of the Reno Rodeo, but Marilyn Newton and her camera have always been present.

“I’ve been covering it every year since 1963,” said Marilyn. “I think I was born with a camera with my hand. I’m not quite sure. I used to be an artist in school and then I picked up a camera and never picked up any art related stuff after that. I actually shot my first photo at 13 for the Carson Appeal. Wrote my first story at 12. Shot my first photo at 13.”

At 73, she has covered every Reno Rodeo since she turned 18, and she’s never stopped looking forward to her favorite ten days in June.

Hannan to take field this season with female head coach – Charleston Gazette

When the Hannan Wildcats take the field Aug. 24 at Tug Valley, they likely will make history as possibly the first high school football squad in West Virginia with a female head coach.

Kellie Thomas has been head coach of girls basketball and volleyball, as well as an assistant coach with track and field, and now she’s adding football coach to her resume. She has also been a physical education teacher and athletic trainer at times during her 20 years in the Mason County School District.

A graduate of Point Pleasant High School and Marshall University, Thomas is well versed in championship football, having been an athletic trainer with Marshall’s 1992 NCAA Division I-AA national title-winning team.
