Sam Mehling resigned April 1 as coach of the Grandview Heights High School wrestling team after five seasons.
“Sam and his family are having a third child, and he’s getting more responsibilities with his job,” athletics director Brad Bertani said. “He’s been coaching for nine years, (including his time as an assistant), so he felt it was time. He still might help out as a volunteer but that has yet to be determined.”
The Bobcats had success at the Division III state tournament with Mehling at the helm. Senior Hudson Jump won titles at 220 pounds this season and 195 last year while Brendan Fitzgerald, a 2016 graduate now competing at Ohio State, was runner-up at 138 as a senior.
