Mount St. Joseph High School announced the selection of Harry Barnabae as new head wrestling coach.

Barnabae, who takes over for Paul Triplett, is a St. Joe graduate and wrestled on the first National Prep team under Neil Adelberg.

He wrestled at the University of Florida until it dropped its program and then transferred to the University of North Carolina.

Most recently, he has been an active volunteer within the wrestling community – coaching multiple junior league teams.
