Barnegat wrestling coach Ken MacIver gets 300th career win: Roundup

  • 0

The Barnegat High School wrestling team beat visiting Salem 60-12 on Tuesday to give Bengals coach Ken MacIver his 300th career win.

MacIver, 62, who coached at several northern New Jersey high schools previously, is in his fifth year at Barnegat. The Bengals improved to 4-4 on the season.

“I’m proud of my guys,” MacIver said. “Three hundred feels great. We were at 298, and we beat Keansburg (43-24) on Monday, and now we won today. I was at 296 to begin the season, and people knew I was going to hit 300, and the kids embraced it. Barnegat is a great school system with a lot of support. We have a great football program, and football and wrestling are joined together. We get a lot of wrestlers from football. Two parents per wrestler were there watching, so there were only about 48 people there. That’s sad.”

Barnegat will host New Egypt at 4 p.m. Wednesday in the Bengals’ last match of the season.

“We had some great seniors last year, and now we have a strong young group,” MacIver said. “My lineup has two freshmen, nine sophomores, one junior and two seniors. We’re hoping to make some noise next year.”
