The Dispatch and The Rock Island Argus wrestling reporter Daniel Makarewicz was selected as the "Newsman of the Year" by the Illinois Wrestling Coaches and Officials Association. The state-wide award, which is based on wrestling coverage throughout the season, was presented during the IWCOA banquet on Sunday in Countryside.

Makarewicz, who started with the paper in 2008, is the second Dispatch/Argus recipient in the 42-year history of the award. John Marx won it in 1991.

Geneseo athletic director Travis Mackey (Class 2A) and Moline athletic director Todd Rosenthal (Class 3A) were named "Administrator of the Year" for their respective classes. Geneseo's Rich Sheley was selected as the Class 2A "Assistant Coach of the Year."
