The Tower Hill wrestling community turned out on Saturday, March 12, to honor Athletic Director Jack Holloway at his retirement as Head Wrestling Coach. The reception was held in and around the “Holloway Wrestling Room,” a space that was dedicated in his honor last May following the completion of the Carpenter Field House renovations. It was beautifully catered by our own Jerry Buckworth and staff, and former wrestling parent, Manny Alvarez was the master of ceremony.
The event was highlighted by personal remarks from returning alumni and current wrestlers. Each shared a special memory and heartfelt appreciation for the life lessons imparted by Coach Holloway. Jack is a legend in Delaware wrestling, coaching for a total of 35 years with numerous individual and team state championships. In addition, he achieved many notable honors including seven-time Delaware Coach of the Year, National Scholastic Wrestling Coach of the Year, and induction into the Delaware Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2003 and the Delaware Sports Museum and Hall of Fame in 2008.
We have been so fortunate to reap the benefits of his experience and talent and look forward to his continued leadership, not only on the wrestling sidelines but for all our sports, as he continues in his primary role as the Tower Hill athletic director!
Matthew Sanyour '07 summarized the feelings of all those present on Saturday, "Thank you, Coach Holloway, for making us both better athletes and better young men.”
