Mars wrestling coaches switch positions

Written by Ken Wunderley on .

Ray Machusko and Zach Maisner are back as coaches of the Mars High School wrestling team. The only difference is that they have switched positions. Maisner is now the head coach, while Machusko serves as his assistant.

"Ray and his wife have a new born," Maisner said. "He still wanted to coach, but didn't feel he could handle the head coaching duties, so we decided to switch positions. The transition was very easy since I was already familiar with the kids. It's worked out well for both of us."

Maisner is a graduate of General McLane High School in Erie. He's had previous assistant coaching gigs at Avonworth and Seneca Valley. This is his head coaching debut.
