June 6, 1944, will always be remembered as the day thousands of troops invaded the Normandy beaches — often thought of as the beginning of the end of World War II.

Harris named ‘Man of the Year’
June 10, 2004

Kit Harris, Baldwin High School wrestling coach, earned the honor Sunday, which was presented by Wrestling USA Magazine. It goes annually to the person in the state who has done the most for the sport of wrestling. “Kit was my selection for ‘04,” said Richard Fergola, president of the Kansas Wrestling Coaches Association (KWCA). “I look for someone who works hard on wrestling, not just their team. Kit was definitely worthwhile.”
