Heritage hires wrestling coach

Former Union wrestling assistant coach Zane Freschette has been selected to take over the head coaching position at Heritage High School.

“He is the right fit for us when we were looking for certain things to fit in to our beliefs, our core values as an athletic department,” said Leta Meyer, Heritage’s athletic coordinator. “He’s about hard work, and he’s all about the kids. His belief is to give back to the community. It’s about developing kids, giving our kids the best experience. It’s about our school, and not just one thing, one sport. We all support each other.”

Freschette has been an assistant at Union for that school’s first three wrestling seasons. A 2001 graduate of Evergreen, Freschette finished fifth at Mat Classic his senior year.

“I’ve been around wrestling for the last 19 years and have had a lot of fun doing it,” he said. “Wrestling gave me a lot of opportunities, and it built who I am as a person.”

Freschette said he wants the Timberwolves to have a similar love and appreciation for the sport, and that comes by having a positive experience with the sport.

“I want a program that works hard and has a lot of fun,” he said.

Freschette takes over for Donnie McPherson, who resigned after a long, successful run as the school’s coach. He led the Timbewolves to the Class 4A state team title and also coached several individual state champions during his time with the team.
