Anderson to Step Down as Head Boys Basketball Coach
The Stevens Point Area Senior High School (SPASH) Athletic Department announced Tuesday, April 17, that boys basketball head coach Scott Anderson has decided not to return as head coach next year.
Anderson has been the head coach of the program for the past nine seasons and has compiled an overall record of 179-52 at SPASH. His teams have won six consecutive Wisconsin Valley Conference Championships, seven Regional Championships, three Sectional Championships, and three consecutive WIAA Division 1 State Championships in 2015, 2016, and 2017.
Anderson indicated that he wants to spend more time with his family, which includes watching and following his son Trevor, who is a sophomore on the University of Wisconsin basketball team.
SPASH Director of Athletics and Activities Michael Blair commented, “We want to thank coach Anderson for not only his hard work and dedication to our school and boys basketball program but also for the manner in which he and his teams represented SPASH. Coach Anderson is the epitome of class and everything that is right with high school sports. We will miss him dearly as the leader of our boys basketball program and are thankful that he will remain an integral member of our teaching faculty.”
Blair indicated SPASH will begin its search for the next boys basketball head coach immediately.
