Tyrone opens positions

The Tyrone Area School Board voted Tuesday to open up two head varsity coaching positions – wrestling and softball.

The board voted unanimously to open up the position of head varsity wrestling coach while Board Member Jim Raabe was the sole dissenter in opening up the varsity softball coach’s job.

Mike Cherry was Tyrone’s wrestling coach last season.

The district will next advertise for candidates for both positions.


The Aug. 20 football scrimmage at Hollidaysburg with Altoona and Clearfield will start at 4 p.m.

Claysburg-Kimmel’s scrimmage will be at Shade, while Northern Bedford scrimmages at Southern Huntingdon.
