‘Burg renames mat invite in honor of Guy

Williamsburg High School honored its most successful wrestling coach by renaming its annual invitational tournament the Bob Guy Invitational.

Guy was the Wildcats’ head wrestling coach from the 1972-73 school year through the 2002-03 school year. In those years he kept Clermont County’s smallest wrestling program, numbers-wise, competitive with the other members of the Clermont County League and later the Southern Buckeye Conference.

“Bob’s done a lot for the Williamsburg athletic program and he is well-liked in the community,” said Ron Ogden, Williamsburg athletic director.

“He’s been a steady, positive influence on the kids year after year after year and he’s been a good friend,” said Jim Dyer, former Williamsburg coach and athletic director. “As a coach he worked tirelessly… We coached football together.”
