Nick Edwards Named New Green City Girls Basketball Coach

The Green City Lady Gophers have a new head coach. Nick Edwards has been named to the position after serving one year as an assistant coach for the boys’ team. Edwards says he learned a lot from boys’ head coach Matt Ayers this past season.

The Lady Gophers went 12-16 this past season under veteran head coach Mike Schmidli. Edwards says Schmidli was another valuable resource for him in his first year at Green City.

This will be Edwards’ first varsity head coaching job. He is a graduate of Knox County High School and Northwest Missouri State University. Edwards shares his vision of the Lady Gophers in the upcoming season.

The Lady Gophers graduate just one player from last season’s team that had a seven-game winning streak snapped in a district championship overtime loss to Mercer.
