The basketball page in “Welcome to the Jungle,” the 1991 Charger yearbook, features two legendary coaches reaching milestones. Girls coach Brenda Holaday reached 100 career wins, while boys coach Steve Murray hit 200. (Current coaches Trevor Keller and Christian Ulsaker are at 2 and 1, respectively, but you can check back in a few years).
The girls team finished the 1990-9 season 12-10, good for a third-place finish in the Mid-East League.
The boys team ended 20-6 with a fourth-place finish at state. The season featured an 11-game win streak and a “Coach of the Year” award for coach Murray from the Manhattan Mercury.
Both Chargers teams play tonight and tomorrow at home in the Wabaunsee Tournament, and begin league play next Friday at home against Rock Creek.
The 1991 yearbook was edited by Krista Gasperich and advised by Brenda Holaday.
