GHC Women's Wrestling Head Coach Kevin Pine was named the National Women’s Wrestling Northwest Conference Coach of the Year for 2024.

The Choker Women's Wrestling team has won the National Collegiate Wrestling Association Northwest Conference Championship three years in a row, and the team is currently ranked first in the country in its division.

GHC Wrestling also won the Collegiate Cup last year, which is the best college men’s and women’s teams combined in the country. According to Pine, the team has an excellent chance to repeat this year.

On top of their impressive record, Pine says there is something else that makes this group of Choker athletes special. "You don't have many opportunities in your career, either as an athlete or a coach, where you have a group of kids that are friends, they train hard together and support each other. That doesn't happen a whole lot," Pine told the Daily World earlier this month.
