Northmen News · Welcome new Ski and Wrestling Coaches


During this strange time with Covid-19, things tend to last longer and not go as fast as everyone would like. We have been working to fill some of our head coaching vacancies over the past few weeks. We have had many good candidates that want to work with our student/athletes. Please welcome:

Ben and Jennifer Crockett as our new Ski Team coach. Both Ben and Jen bring a wealth of ski experience to the position and will continue to keep our ski program at the top of its game. Ben and Jen are excited to get started and meet their athletes. They can be reached by email at
Ben- bcrockett@ncmich.edu
Jen- jcrockett@pellstonschools.org

Rob Szukala as our new Wrestling Coach. Rob has been with the district for the past few years as the Assistant Principal at PHS. Rob’s wrestling background is extensive and as a head coach, he has won three district titles in his four years of leading programs. While covid-19 has limited anything the wrestling program can do at this time, Coach Szukala is excited to get to work with our wrestlers. Coach Szukala can be reached at Szukala.rj.m@petoskeyschools.org
