Horizon Christian Announces New Head Coach

March 15, 2017
By Coach Dave Brown

Dear Horizon Families,

We would like to announce that Staci Sprauer has resigned as our High School Girls Basketball coach. We would like to thank Staci for the outstanding job she has done for Horizon Christian in Girls Basketball over the last 2 years. In addition, we are grateful for the investment Bernadette Tatlock made in our Lady Hawks as the assistant coach. The girls always played with great attitudes and an energy that honored Christ each and every game. Staci made this difficult decision based on the busyness she is experiencing balancing family, her start up business, and of course being our outstanding Horizon Christian Volleyball coach. Next year she will be focusing solely on our Girls Volleyball program.

We are excited to announce a new direction for our Girls Basketball Program. Beginning this spring, Scott Olson will be taking over as our interim head coach and will be assisted by Scott Graham. Scott Graham assisted in coaching our talented 7th & 8th grade Middle School Girls to an undefeated season, capped with a Metro Christian League Championship. Together they will continue building a competitive program for our current and future Lady Hawks.

Scott Olson has coached for 24 years in Track (21 Years) Cross Country (11 years) Football (12 years) and Basketball (5 years). He has won multiple championships with our Track and Cross Country programs since his hire in 2006. His passion for athletics and his desire to make Christ relevant in the lives of athletes will be a great asset to our Basketball program.

These next few months will be crucial to getting Horizon Christian Girls hoops off to an awesome start. The coaching staff will bring the experience and enthusiasm needed to carry over the momentum of an undefeated season and league championship at the Horizon Middle School level, to become a force in the West Valley League in the coming years. You will be receiving information on the next steps in this process in the coming days.

We are asking any of you out there with female athletes to consider partnering with us as we build on Horizon Christian’s already storied legacy. We will have exciting announcements coming soon offering spring and summer involvement for girls from 4th through 12th grade.

Thank you for your continued support of Hawks Athletics.

 

Blessings,
Dave Brown
Athletic Director
