LADY PATRIOTS LOSE LOCAL COACHING LEGEND

The coaching carousel continues to turn in local prep sports.

Veteran John Ehret girls basketball coach Ron Heuer has decided to retire after 20 years on the job with the Lady Patriots.

Heuer led his Ehret squad to the state quarterfinals in 5A this past season with a 30-4 record.

After reaching the magical 500 win mark this past season, Heuer finishes his illustrious career with 527 victories.

The shining moment in Heuer's career came in 2001 when John Ehret captured the 5A state championship.

Heuer will continue teaching but plans to spend more time with his family now that he is no longer involved in basketball.

The search for a replacement begins immediately. Heuer will be a very tough act to follow.
