Wood River honors Fred Trenkle Dec. 20

At halftime of Buhl home game

Recently retired Blaine County educator and longtime basketball coach Fred Trenkle of Shoshone will be honored Thursday, Dec. 20 during Wood River’s home basketball game with the Buhl Tribe. Athletic director John Rade said, “Dec. 20, 2012 is Fred Trenkle Night at Wood River High School. We will recognize Fred's dedication at halftime of the boys’ varsity game against Buhl.” In this photo, Trenkle shows his passion for the game during a timeout in his last coaching game, on Feb. 29 when he was at the helm of the Hailey eighth-grade boys’ team. He started his basketball coaching career of over 40 years in 1970 in the old Wood River junior high school gym. He became a record-setting and Hall of Fame men’s coach at the College of Southern Idaho in Twin Falls. Trenkle ended his career coaching both the Wood River girls’ varsity and middle school eighth-grade boys last winter. He had two separate stints as the Wood River High boys’ varsity coach, from 1973-80 with a 100-58 record, and from 2003-06 with a 21-48 record and Wood River’s last state tournament visit, in 2004. Back in 1974, Trenkle led the Wolverine boys to their highest-ever state tourney finish, second place. Express photo by David N. Seelig
