Story By Newswatch 12 Sports


EAGLE RIVER - What proved to be a long night in the end meant no changes for the Northland Pines boys basketball team.

The Northland Pines School Board was considering replacing eight-year head coach Ryan Clark. Clark has won just 26 games in the last seven years.

Nearly 70 people attended Monday night's meeting. Among those in attendance - former Lakeland coach Ted Voigt. Medford head coach Ron Lien was also there in support of Clark.

Only one person spoke at the meeting against bringing back Clark.


After the public addressed the board for over an hour, a closed-door session was held. It lasted around three hours. Clark's future, along with other items on the agenda were discussed.

When the meeting was opened back to the public, Clark's contract as coach was renewed. The vote was 6-1. The renewal is for one-year with stipulations to be added at a future date.
