Schenk Back Where He Began

Russ Schenk has been named the new River Ridge wrestling coach 10 years after he last coached the Royal Knights.
Schenk left River Ridge to coach his alma mater, Tarpon Springs, and then went to Berkeley Prep before leaving for Culver Academy in Indiana.
Schenk, who has compiled a 242-63-2 career dual match record, replaces Robert Pecori, who coached for a season. Prior to Pecori, Carlo Parente coached three seasons before he was replaced by Mike Lero, who coached for one season before resigning. Lero replaced Mike DeGennaro, who was Schenk’s successor.
Schenk, who will teach physical education at River Ridge, went 60-29 as the Royal Knights coach.
River Ridge athletic director Jack Homko hopes this will end the school’s revolving door at that position.
“It has been [a revolving door] and we’re looking for some stability,” Homko said. “There have been quite a few coaches, but hopefully Russ has come full circle and he’s back to where he started.”
