Ashland, NE (4/18/19) Jake Nichelson has officially accepted the wrestling head coaching position at Ashland-Greenwood. Nichelson teaches fourth grade and is in his third year at AG. Nichelson is a former 3-time medalist and state champion for the Bluejays and has been an assistant coach since 2016.
Dan Beranek stepped down after the 2018-19 season leaving the vacancy. “I’m excited and humbled to have the opportunity to build on the tradition of great head coaches we’ve had at Ashland-Greenwood,” says Coach Nichelson.
Nichelson plans to assemble a staff of former Bluejay wrestlers, adding Cody Lambert and Trevor Nichelson with current assistant Tyler Cogswell.
