Berea-Midpark’s Girls Basketball Coach Kevin Braaten announced his resignation Wednesday afternoon.
After a lengthy decision, Braaten has decided to step down after six seasons as the leader of the Titans girls basketball program. “It has been such a great experience for my family and me” said Braaten. “I feel very luck to have had the opportunity to coach so many great players and kids over the past six years. I will miss all the wonderful people at Berea-Midpark High School.”
Braaten has amassed a 119-34 overall coaching record at Berea-Midpark, including a record of 14-10 this season. He was named the Southwestern Conference Coach of the Year in 2014, 2017 and 2018, the same years that his Titans teams were crowned SWC champions.
“Our Lady Titans Basketball program has been very fortunate to have Kevin Braaten as their leader the last six seasons” said Adam Howard, Berea-Midpark Athletic Director. “He has served our program and kids with every ounce of effort and professionalism possible. He has demanded and produced excellence on and off the court while developing lifelong relationships. We wish Kevin and his family well on their next chapter.”
The list of accomplishments for Braaten’s Titans is extensive:
