YANKTON – Former Chamberlain boys basketball head coach Allan Bertram has been named as the new women’s basketball head coach at Mount Marty University.
Bertram, the founder of the Sacred Hoops Basketball Academy, has been a high school basketball coach for 19 seasons. The last two were as the girls’ head coach at Rapid City Central with a 28-15 record. Bertram led the Cobblers to this year’s AA state tournament and a seventh-place finish.
Before that, Bertram won 254 games in 17 seasons as a boys head coach. 12 of those were at Chamberlain, where he remains the winningest boys head coach in school history. Bertram led the Cubs to four state tournament appearances, four region championships, five district championships and six conference titles.
Interim Mount Marty Athletic Director Andy Bernatow said of Bertram, “While his coaching career is very impressive, we’re equally impressed with Coach Bertram’s servant leadership with young athletes through the Sacred Hoops program.”
Bertram replaces Todd Schlimgen, who resigned earlier this year.
