Wrestling: Assistant Adams named new coach at North Hall

By AccessWDUN Staff

GAINESVILLE — North Hall Athletic Director Sam Borg announced Thursday that assistant coach Wesley Adams has been named new head wrestling coach for the Trojans.

A North Hall graduate, Adams wrestled collegiately for the Division I Mercer Bears. For two of his four seasons at Mercer, he was team captain. In 2015, he served there as a graduate assist to the program. 

In 2020, Adams was hired at North Hall to teach math and to assist the both the middle and high school wrestling programs. He takes over for David Nichols, who stepped down last month after five years at the helm of the program.

This will not be Adams first head coaching position. Prior to returning to his high school alma mater, he was the head wrestling coach at Mount de Sales Academy in Macon from 2018 to 2020. During his tenure at Mount de Sales, Adams’ teams won two Area Duals titles and two traditional Area championships.

“I feel extremely honored and blessed to be selected as the next head coach (at North Hall)," Adams said. "Coach Nichols has done a fantastic job at making this one of the premier programs in the state. Many people have put in a lot of work to get North Hall to where it is today. I am excited to get started and put my own stamp on this program. North Hall is home to me, and there is nowhere else I would rather be."

The Trojans program reached unprecedented heights during Nichols' stint. North Hall had eight wrestlers combine for a total of 12 Georgia High School Association individual titles. The team won two GHSA Class 3A State Dual Titles, one GHSA State Dual runner-up finish, two GHSA Traditional runner-up finishes, two GHSA Traditional third-place showings, and eight Area Titles (Duals and Traditionals) in his five seasons.
