A major figure is changing places in the Virginia AAA Northern Region wrestling scene.

Langley wrestling coach John Belyea has resigned his position at the McLean school to take over the same position at Centreville.

Over the past nine years, Belyea built Langley into a powerhouse, posting a 132-45 overall record. He coached 33 district champions, 13 regional champions, two state champions (five finalists in the last three years) and 13 Saxons placed in states. He was the district coach of the year six times.

Langley won nine district titles and won the regional title in 2007, with five top four finishes in the Northern Region since 2000.

"My wife and I bought a house in Haymarket in June," Belyea said. "The opportunity to work closer to home was huge for me. Drive time is a huge improvement for me each day and will be for my family at home events. I have enjoyed my nine years an Langley and I always thought I would retire there."
