Mark Adams steps down as Lancers boys basketball coach
He will leave after best season his history
Brookfield Central boys basketball coach Mark Adams told his players his afternoon that he is stepping down as head coach after 14 years as a head coach and 26 years overall at BCHS.
The Lancers just finished the season 24-1, the best record in school history, but fell two victories short of going to the state tournament.
Adams last game was a 77-74 loss in overtime Thursday in the WIAA Sectional Semifinal to Milwaukee King, who went on to the state tournament by beating Racine Case in the title game Saturday.
Adams had a 242-90 record, an excellent .729 winning mark with two outright conference titles (2002-2003, 2013-14) and two co-championships (2012-2013, 2001-02).
He took the team to the state tournament six times in 2001 (0-1), 2002 (1-1), 2003 (0-1), 2006 (0-1), 2007 (0-1) and 2008 (1-1).
The past two years the Lancers didn't lose a home game (26-0) and were 44-5 (.898).
