McPherson, KS – May 10, 2017 – Central Christian College Athletics Director, Twiggs Reed, is pleased to the addition of women’s wrestling to Central’s docket of athletic programs for the 2017-2018 season and the appointment of Don Schreimann as the new head coach for the Tiger women’s wrestling program.
Coach Schreimann brings strong experience with both women's and men's coaching at the high school and college level. He began his coaching career at the high school level 42 years ago at Warrensburg High School In Warrensburg, Missouri. He spent 37 years at Warrensburg, before transitioning to the college ranks. This past season he was the head women's wrestling coach at Wentworth Military Academy in Lexington, Missouri, but this spring, the college announced that it would be closing its doors at the end of the school year.
Coach Schreimann has two great loves outside of his family. The first is a love for Jesus Christ and His gospel, and the second is coaching wrestling. He fell in love with women’s wrestling about 10 years ago when he was the Freestyle and Greco coach for a club program at the University of Central Missouri. His work with the women at Central Missouri, garnered him the attention of Missouri USA Wrestling, who asked him to become their women’s coach. He was drawn to women’s wrestling because of the attitude and work ethic he saw in female wrestlers.
“I’m excited to finally be a part of a private institution where I can freely share my faith publically”, said Schreimann. “God have given me the opportunity to do the two things I love, spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, and impact lives of athletes through the sport of wrestling. This is a fantastic opportunity, and I will work my tail off to do both.
