Whitewater Unified School District will be rededicating their newly refinished middle school gym floor to long time Boys’ Basketball Head Coach Ken Nehring on December 6th, during the game against Evansville. The dedication ceremony will take place in-between the JV and Varsity games (approximately 6:45pm). These games will be played at Whitewater Middle School.
Nehring retired in 1989 and is a member of the WBCA Hall of Fame. He finished his career after 34 years as head coach with a record of 470-269 which included 8 league championships, 4 district championships, and 10 regional championships. His conference record was 306-137 and his 1969-70 team finished the regular season 18-0. Nehring was the head coach for the South All-Star Team in 1980. He is remembered best for his intense desire to develop his players’ talents as athletes and individuals and for always showing good sportsmanship. There will be a social gathering after the game. More details on the social will be provided at a later date. It is hoped Coach Nehring’s former players will attend this rededication event.
