Waldport — After a four-year tenure, former Waldport boy basketball head coach Peter Ellingsen took his talents to Newport, but the Irish are still in good hands.
Former boys junior varsity head coach Michelle Severson is now leading the varsity Irish into the foreseeable future.
Although she isn’t new to the program, Severson has already seen positive signs ahead of the new season.
Waldport will host both the boys and girls at home today (Wednesday), Dec. 4, against Perryville.
“I have seen so much growth from our returners,” Severson said. “Excited to get the season started and see what we can accomplish.”
