Olson to Coach Underwood Boys Basketball Team
Curt Olson has been named the new head boys basketball coach in Underwood.  Curt has been an assistant basketball and football coach for the Rockets for the past nine years.
 
Before coming to Underwood he was teaching and coaching in Lakota, North Dakota.  Olson was an assistant footbal coach for three years and assisted in basketball for one year before taking over the head coaching position there for two years.  He is from MuClusky, North Dakota and played college basketball at Valley City State University.
 
"We are very excited to have Curt as our head basketball coach," said Underwood Athletic Director Derrick Nelson.  "Curt is very dedicated to Underwood athletics and will do a great job with the young men that he will be working with."
 
Olson will replace Trevor Schneeberger who resigned the position earlier this month after one year at the helm.
 
The team of Rod Votava, Scott Schauff, Justin Arneson and Brian Olson took first place at the B.K. Soby Open last Thursday.  Their final net score was 58.  Arneson won the Closest to the Pin contest on the fourth hole, Amy Olson won the longest drive on the fifth hole, Mike Westergard had the longest putt on the eighteenth hole and Eric Schneeberger won the closest to the pin contest on the eighth hole and the longest putt on the ninth hole.

Players will participate in two games and will also have their skills evaluated in their primary position and on the mound if they are also a pitcher.
