Tigers’ Moore to step down

From Mirror reports

HOLLIDAYSBURG — The Hollidaysburg Area School District announced on Monday that wrestling coach Mike Moore is stepping down after 15 years as the head of the program.

“My decision has not been made lightly,” Moore said in a press release. “I hold every student-athlete that I currently coach on a podium of respect, as well as the wrestling community of the Hollidaysburg area. I truly valued my 15 years working with the student-athletes at Hollidaysburg.”

According to the school’s athletic director, Homer DeLattre, Moore will remain as a physical education teacher at the senior high school.

“We thank Mike for his 15 years of service to the student-athletes of Hollidaysburg. His leadership and influence on the young men he has coached goes far beyond the mats and will continue to do so for years to come,” DeLattre said.

While at Hollidaysburg, Moore, a Bald Eagle-Nittany graduate who wrestled at Pitt and finished his degree at Lock Haven University, coached 12 district champions, two regional champions, one PIAA place-winner and numerous PIAA qualifiers, many of whom have gone on to wrestle at the collegiate level.

“Mike has been a great ambassador to the sport of wrestling not only in this area, but across the great wrestling state of Pennsylvania,” DeLattre said.

The athletic department will take applications for the position both inside and outside the school district according to DeLattre.

Moore was 56-148 going into this past season at the helm. He was assisted this past year by Mitch Johns and Dave Frazier.
