For the Andes boys’ varsity basketball team, it’s a little less “out with the old, in with the new” and more “in with the old with a new point of view.”
Head Coach John Bernhardt is returning to the reins after a hiatus from the coaching ranks while last year’s coach, Adam VanValkenburg, works on completing work on his master’s degree.
“No one else expressed an interest, so I said, ‘What the heck,’” Bernhardt said. “I love basketball, love coaching basketball – it’s a lot of fun, but I must admit it’s a little more taxing on the body as I get older.”
