BURNSVILLE, Minn.– Augustana wrestling head coach Jason Reitmeier has been named the NSIC Coach of the Year, announced by the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference on Thursday morning.
Reitmeier led the Vikings to the most conference wins in his coaching career this season. In the conference, the Vikings finished 8-1 and were runners-up in the NSIC. The Vikings then finished second at the NCAA Division II Region V Championships.
Augustana defeated six top-25 teams this season, consistently holding a national ranking throughout the season. The Vikings also qualified eight wrestlers for the 2022 NCAA DII National Championships.
