CHEYENNE – Cheyenne East wrestling coach Thad Trujillo was named Wyoming’s coach of the year by the National Wrestling Coaches Association on Thursday.

Trujillo helped the Thunderbirds win their first Class 4A state championship since 1965. East didn’t have a state champion, but had 11 athletes place at the state tournament. That included four state runners-up and three third-place finishers.

This was Trujillo’s fifth season at the helm of the T-Birds. He was a paid assistant on the East staff for five seasons before that.
