The Pine City Schoolboard Voted 4-3 to not renew the contract of head coach Eric Wicktor.

Watch the board debate the issue.

The debate wraps up, and the vote takes place. Just for the record: Dan Peterson, Steve Odegard, Robert Shuey and Bonnie Menigo voted against retaining the coach. Tim Geisler, Roger Rutgers, and Ilene Sommer voted to retain the coach.

The crowd just walks out silently after the vote.

Around 60 supporters from the community came to the Pine City School Board meeting last night to support Dragons head Basketball coach Eric Wicktor who has been told his contract will not be renewed.

Prior to the vote, Wicktor was given a chance to speak.

Several former players, parents and friends of Wicktor’s addressed the board prior to their vote, hoping to save Wicktor’s job.

Braham’s legendary coach Bob Vaughan also spoke on Wicktor’s behalf, and essentially said that Wicktor has achieved more in his first nine years on the job than coach Vaughan did in his first nine seasons.
