Dwight Gunnare, the Casper College Women’s Basketball team’s head coach, has been named Coach of the Year in Region IX for the 2020-2021 year and for the fourth year in a row. This also marks the ninth year since Gunnare began coaching at Casper College in 2008 that he has been named Coach of the Year in Region IX.

“I view individual recognitions as a true compliment to the entire team. Individual awards are often influenced by the overall success of the team,” Gunnare noted.

The Lady Thunderbirds are currently ranked third in the country and went 20-0, 10-0 Region IX north. The season marked the first undefeated regular season in program history. The women have won 35 consecutive games, which dates to the 2019-2020 season.
