FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - The Canterbury boys basketball team has a new but familiar face on the sideline as practice began for boys teams all across the state on Monday.
Scott Kreiger takes over the boys program at Canterbury after spending 14 seasons as the head girls coach at the school.
Coach Kreiger will work with a solid core of players returning from the school’s first ever appearance in the boys semi-state game last season. That includes senior Trent Van Horn and Austin Hatch - who is listed as a junior per a recent ruling by the IHSAA.
Hatch was recently medically cleared to participate in some - but not all - drills in practice. How much he will play this season has yet to be determined.
Kreiger has won four 1A state titles in the last five seasons was the head coach of the Canterbury girls team. He is 251-88 in his 14 years with the Cavaliers.
The Cavs begin the regular season November 20 at Central Noble.
