Posen Girls Basketball Coach Karl Momrik Retires After 15 Years

Posen, MI – After 15 seasons with Posen’s girls’ basketball, Head Coach Karl Momrik has decided to retire.

With a career 253-79 record, 11 North Star League championships, nine district titles, and one regional title, Momrik has developed the Lady Vikings into a top small-school program.

Coach Momrik reflected on his 15 seasons at Posen, and his highlights include not only his wins but the relationships he built with players and coaches along the way. “The affiliation with the kids,” he said. “Also the friendships I forged with other coaches in the area is really special to me.”

In his first season with Posen, Coach Momrik went 9-11. The following year, his team went 17-3 and even won the North Star League Championship. Things continued to excel for the Lady Vikings led by Momrik between 2010 to 2014, earning an impressive 91-7 record.

Without the dedication of his players, Coach Momrick couldn’t have done it on his own. “Just working with the kids day in and day out and seeing the improvement in practice, making sure they were running things,” said Momrik. “We ran rough practices, but the kids bought into it, and they really worked hard for us.”

Several of his players went on to play basketball in college, thanks to the skills they developed from Momrik’s coaching. Much like his players graduating and moving onto the next chapter of their lives, Coach Momrik has decided to do the same as he enters retirement.

What does he most look forward to in his newfound freedom? “Just being able to do pretty much what I want when I want,” he said.

Congratulations to Coach Momrik on his fantastic career full of milestones and accomplishments and wish him the best of luck in his retirement.
