(WFRV) – Kimberly boys basketball coach Lucky Wurtz is retiring.
The program’s twitter account tweeted the news on Wednesday afternoon that Wurtz was hanging it up after 13 seasons with the program. During that time Wurtz helped lead Kimberly to 231 wins, four FVA titles and a runner up finish at state just this past year.
“To tell them today, was poignant to talk to them. I was going to handle that around 1:30 today and to be with them. I feel like I’m in a good place with my basketball, and life, moving on to my family a little bit more. Everybody moves on, but it’s been a precious time in my life from Laconia, to Waupun, to Kimberly. It’s been great. It’s been a great ride,” said Lucky Wurtz.
Wurtz also led Laconia to state in 2002, and spent time as the head coach at Waupun before being hired at Kimberly.
