Enumclaw veteran wrestling coach Reichert retires
The sport of high-school wrestling lost one of its good guys last week.
Longtime Enumclaw High School coach Lee Reichert announced his retirement after 18 memorable seasons leading the Hornets and 37 seasons overall.
Reichert, 60, just concluded a highly successful run with Enumclaw, guiding the Hornets to four Class 3A state titles in a five-year span prior to a fourth-place finish this season. Enumclaw was a runner-up in 2010.
Reichert and Hornets brought home state titles in 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012 giving him seven state crowns as a high-school coach.
Prior to taking the Enumclaw job, Reichert pushed Kentwood to elite status and helped the Conquerors to consecutive state titles in 1990, 1991 and 1992.
Also joining Reichert in retirement is longtime assistant Guy Hanson.
