Foothill High's Dennis Golcher was named the North Coast Section wrestling honor coach of the year, and was recognized at the NCS wrestling finals held at Newark Memorial High School in February. NCS picks one wrestling coach each year from its 169 schools.
Golcher wrestled as a student at Amador Valley High School, and began to coach at Dublin High School in 1985. He coached at Amador Valley from 1986 to 1999, and came to Foothill in 2007.
He has been East Bay Athletic League tournament director for 12 years, the NCS assistant tournament director for 11 years, and was the NCS dual team tournament director in 2012. Golcher is employed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in computer science.
This season, coached by Golcher and Bennie LaFever, Foothill varsity wrestling won the EBAL title, while JVs had an undefeated regular season. Rookie wrestler Rachael Butler, a sophomore, earned fourth place at the state level after a second-place ranking at the NCS girls wrestling championships.
