Hello and happy Wednesday everybody, it’s Tyler Henry, back with another KINA Sports Update presented by Salina Regional Orthopedic and Sports Medicine.

On Tuesday it was officially announced that Southeast of Saline boy’s basketball head coach Bryson Flax will step down after six years leading the Trojans.

Flax concludes his time in Gypsum with an overall record of 94-47, including three-straight trips to the 3A state tournament, but will be stepping away to care for his family, after his youngest son was hospitalized multiple times throughout the season due to complications related to a battle with epilepsy


Flax became the second NCAA head coach to announce his resignation this week, but he wouldn’t be the last, as on Wednesday the story broke that long-time coach John Darrow has resigned his post as head boy’s basketball coach in Minneapolis

Darrow, who coached for 30 years including 24 seasons in Minneapolis, led the Lady Lions for 15 years before leading the Lions to a 75-114 record over the course of the last nine.


And finally, keeping things in the NCAA last night, the 2nd-ranked Sacred Heart baseball team staved off a league rival in Ellsworth, getting a walk-off sac fly from Evan Bogart to win game one 12-11, before taking game two 8-2.
