Lynden Christian girls basketball coach Curt DeHaan has announced his retirement. The WIAA Hall of Famer will step down from coaching, but remain on as the Athletic Director at L.C.

DeHaan told KPUG he knew at the start of the year this would be his last season. He says he held off on the announcement until after the season wrapped up because he didn’t want to take away anything away from his team.

DeHaan retires after 38 years, 772 wins and 8 state titles, including a state championship win over Kings this year in Yakima.
