WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Entering his 38th year of coaching, Weston Schartz is taking on a new challenge.
After a six-win season at Wichita West, Schartz headed across town to take over as the head coach of the Kapaun Mt. Carmel Crusaders.
“Kapaun is a gold mine and they’ve had a great tradition, in the 70s and 80s and have always been pretty good, and it’s a great opportunity to continue to do what I love,” said Schartz.
The Crusaders are coming off a tough 2019 season where they won just two games and at one point, dropped six in a row.
“We’ve got our work cut out, but you know, they’ve got a great tradition here and we think we can restore it,” said Schartz.
As of now, Kapaun is set to open the season against Wichita South on September 4 at Stryker Sports Complex.
