After spending the last 35-years in coaching, Al Baxter will transfer his competitive fire from the wrestling room to the golf course. Baxter is retiring as the wrestling coach at Buena Vista after 26-years at the helm. Baxter’s moving Chesapeake, Virginia, where he and his wife will live “30 to 45 seconds from the front door” of a golf course, and he says he’ll be golfing every day. Baxter’s teams have won eight conference titles and finished in the nation’s top ten a dozen times. Baxter says Buena Vista’s a fantastic place and he’s enjoyed his time at the school. Before taking over at Buena Vista, Baxter spent nine years at Lisbon High School where his teams won nine state titles. His biggest legacy will be the 70 men who were coached by Baxter who themselves are now coaching. Baxter says it means the world to get letters and email from those men who’ve entered his profession. Baxter’s dual record at Buena Vista is 376-119-5.
