Drew Kelly, a three-time state wrestling champion, has been named wrestling coach at Ames High School.
The job requires approval of the Ames School Board at its May 19 meeting, according to Ames athletic director Judge Johnston.
Kelly, who wrestled at Charles City, has been an assistant coach at Fort Dodge for the last three seasons. Prior to that, he was an assistant at Waterloo Columbus.
In high school, Kelly had a 133-10 record, losing only one match in his final three seasons.
He replaces Chad Zmolek, who had the position for one season and who will remain at Ames at boys’ soccer coach.
