In keeping our promise to bring you “off-season” high school basketball updates, we have more local sports news and pictures from area summer hoops action.
First, our second “wave” of pictures that we shot from local basketball games and tournaments…
Secondly, here’s some “big news” concerning the local basketball coaching scene.
Parkland’s long time Head Coach Andy Stephens resigned his position and became the school’s new athletic director. (Andy has already agreed to be on an upcoming ATVN SportsTalk in September to talk about his decisions and his new plan taking over all of the Trojan’s athletic programs).
A subsequent move saw Parkland promoting Eddie Ohlsen Jr. to become their next head basketball coach. I remember Eddie’s playing days when he was a rock steady point guard with the Trojans. He has been a staple with the program ever since–taking over as an assistant coach soon after his graduation (and he’s been busy playing in adult basketball leagues as well). It should be a smooth transition for the coaching change as his team has already won its first two summer games since he took over the helm of the program.
Lastly, the annual Allentown Throwdown summer boys basketball tournament once again featured teams that were not from the Lehigh Valley. Their championship game featured Malvern Prep defeating Lower Merion for the title.
