Kyle Mastenbrook, who last year guided the boys freshmen team to a 17-2 record, will lead the Warriors as head coach for the 2012-2013 season. He will replace legendary coach Jim Goorman, who was head coach for 33 years at WMC. Goorman’s teams won five state championships along with three runner-up titles and more than 500 games.

Josh Glerum, a former Warrior, is the new junior varsity boys coach.

Mastenbrook hails from Kalamazoo, where he played basketball for his father, Jerry Mastenbrook, an outstanding varsity boys basketball coach of the Kalamazoo Christian Comets for many years.

"I'm excited for the opportunity to work with the guys,” he said. “I know we will work hard to carry on the tradition of excellence in basketball. I love the passion around this school for basketball, and I believe in the greater mission of the Western Michigan Christian schools.

"I have been around high school basketball ever since my dad started coaching. I have been blessed to be able to learn from him, and then being able to come to WMC and learn from another very successful coach, Jim Goorman.”
