On Monday, Aug. 9 the Rockridge School Board unanimously approved the hiring of Chad Ruden as the new head varsity wrestling coach at Rockridge High School.

Ruden was previously an assistant coach with the Rockridge Junior High wrestling program for the last two years. He brings a wealth of wrestling knowledge and experience to the position. He was a state qualifier in 1990 for Le Mars Community High School in Iowa, wrestled one year in Germany, and has coached multiple wrestlers in the junior high who have placed at the state and national levels.

Ruden replaces Dave King who resigned from the position last spring after one year.
