Announcements and Important Events
It is with the heaviest of hearts that the Holt athletic department shares the loss of Rupert “Rocky” Shaft, Head Varsity Wrestling Coach. We can easily announce all of Rocky’s 47 years’ worth of wrestling records, how he coached Holt wrestling to 34 District Titles in a row, won 3 State Titles and coached 18 State Champions, but that would not begin to scratch the surface of the void we are feeling today. Rocky was more than a wrestling coach. To some, he was a father figure. To others, a coaching mentor. To all, he was a genuine caring friend that loved this Holt Community, loved his family, being a father of daughters, a grandfather, and loved coaching wrestling. Rest in Peace Rocky, we had fun making memories.
The athletic department and Holt’s Crisis Intervention Support Team would like to offer any student that would like some extra support today, an opportunity to meet via Google Meet from Noon to 1pm today, Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Please use google meet code = rocky.
