Winter coaching positions approved


Fri, Oct 30th, 2009
Posted in Education

Much of the October 28 Fillmore Central School Board meeting was in discussion over winter coaching positions and scheduling of events. Athletic Director Jane Montgomery included a list of the number of students signed up for boys and girls basketball and wrestling.

Because of the lower number of girls, 23, signed up for basketball, it was questioned whether three coaches were necessary. Chairman Sue Sikkink said they usually average in boys basketball 10 students per coach. Sikkink asked if it was doable to have one head coach and one junior high coach with one volunteer assistant. The hire of two coaches, Sarah Tollefsrud and Aaron Mensink for girls basketball, with Deb Ristau as the volunteer, was approved.

Montgomery said she would like to have all the girls basketball players transported on one bus, varsity and junior high. However, parents are concerned about their junior high girls getting home too late. In order to satisfy this concern of parents and to use only one bus for transportation, junior high games will start at 5:00 p.m. and varsity will start at 6:15 p.m. This should allow the bus to return before 9:00 p.m.

Montgomery said other athletic directors and superintendents are fine with this. Some parents are concerned about two family members playing in two different games at the same time. Montgomery suggested this has always been a problem. She said the key thing is to have consistency. Sikkink said if other districts are willing to cooperate, we should go along with it, which will save the district money.

About 51 students were signed up for boys basketball. The board approved five coaches for boys basketball including Heath Olstad, Keith Larson, Tris Tollefson, Jason Schwarz, and Steve Lindstrom.

Thirty-one students were signed up for wrestling with fifteen of those from Lanesboro. Montgomery said Joe Cullen was willing to be part time again. The wrestling coaches were approved including Nate Carlson, Allen Lafleur and Joe Cullen.
