BJ Bertelsman with HHS Wrestlers

Huntley High School’s B.J. Bertelsman has been voted the 2017 Northwest Herald Wrestling Coach of the Year. Bertelsman capped his sixth year at the helm of the program with a number of accomplishments, including the team’s best-ever fifth-place finish at the Dvorak Tournament, first Fox Valley Conference dual title, first regional title and a program-best five state qualifiers.
“Winning regionals was cool, I kind of thought we could have done that and it was very possible. But I think sectionals when we got our fifth guy in (to state) it was pretty cool to see,” Bertelsman said.
Bertelsman teaches biology and botany/horticulture at HHS.
In addition, 10 HHS wrestlers were named to the newspaper’s All-Area Team. Read more about that accomplishment on
