Hollister High School announces that Coach Kevin Besch will serve as the next head girls basketball coach for the 2022-2023 school year. Besch succeeds Coach Jeff Dishman. Coach Besch joins Hollister with 22 years of education and coaching experience, with most of those years serving the Aurora School District.
“We are excited to have Coach Besch take over our girls' basketball program,” states Hollister Athletic Director, Mike Johnson. “He understands how to build a total program from youth to high school and will be a great mentor for our student-athletes as well as a great colleague for the youth sports and middle school coaches.”
Coach Besch shares that he is looking forward to working with all potential Lady Tiger Basketball players. “I want to see as many young ladies as possible give basketball a try in their elementary years,” Besch says. “I want to work with the youth sports coaches that help them. I want to help young ladies learn the complete game of basketball and help them to foster a love for basketball, one that I hope they will carry with them as they come into their middle school and high school years.”
While in the short term Besch’s focus is on making player development with the current players his number one priority, as well as helping each player with their own short term goals, in the long term he desires to build a program that will be one of the best in the area.
Hollister High School Principal, Dr. Jared Terry, is looking forward to having Coach Besch join the high school team. “Coach Besch is a team player and is eager to learn the Hollister Tiger way,” Terry shares.
