Coach of the Year

Mike Ritchey

Mike Ritchey

Sprague Wrestling


Coach Ritchey took the reins of the Sprague program only shortly before the wrestling season began. He quickly showed why he was the perfect person to lead the Olys. Ritchey led Sprague to their tenth consecutive conference championship.


Sprague finished second as a team in a highly competitive field of teams at the OSAA state championship tournament. The Olys had five individual OSAA 6A champions, tied for the most in program history while developing a young group of wrestlers along the way.


Job well done, Coach Ritchey.


SK-Beacons

The primary goal of The Beacons is to remove any financial barrier that might prevent any student in any Salem-Keizer School District high school from enjoying the benefits of athletic participation. We are dedicated to ensuring that all students have the opportunity to participate because Salem-Keizer high school athletics focuses on excellence in academics, leadership, character development, and competition as vital components in student achievement.
