FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - Wayne Kreiger returned to the sideline as a head coach for the first time in three years as girls high school basketball practice got underway Monday afternoon in the state of Indiana.
After serving two years as an assistant in "semi-retirement' mode at Canterbury Kreiger now takes the reigns for the Cavaliers.
Kreiger replaces his son Scott Kreiger, who resigned to take over as boys varsity head coach upon the departure of Dan Kline.
The Cavaliers won the class A state title last season, their fourth state title in the last five years.
A member of the Indiana Basketball Coaches Hall of Fame, Kreiger spent 33 years as the girls basketball coach at Columbia City, winning a total of 520 games and leading the Lady Eagles to the state championship game in 2000.
