A year after reviving its cross country program, Harlem High School will be starting a new sport this year.
Hired in the summer, 1995 Lakeside graduate Kevin Waters has taken charge of putting the Bulldogs on the wrestling map for the 2015-16 school year. Discussions originally had the program starting a year later, but Waters was able to convince the Harlem administration that the time was right.
“Yeah, I won,” he said, laughing.
First-year athletic director Mark Boiters noted that Waters’ enthusiasm was the driving force behind speeding up the timetable.
