Looking Ahead: City High

Funny how much of a contrast can occur from one high school in the very same city to the next.

Iowa City West, as you can see, will be very experienced even coming off of their state title. City High, not so much.

Five of the Little Hawks’ best players are graduating and moving on to future endeavors. They don’t have the best resumé recently — City went 9-14 this past season — and at the current moment, they don’t have a head coach.

Wait, what?

Yes, Adam Loria resigned earlier this month after four seasons at the helm. Loria went 38-53 during those years. He will remain on staff at the school, but will focus more on his family and higher education for the time being.

City High plans to have a new coach in place by May 1.

One benefit of losing those five seniors is that the Little Hawks will have a lot of senior leadership on next year’s squad while still boasting a considerable amount of juniors and even sophomores. So while the future may not necessarily be right now as the saying goes, it may be sooner rather than later.

With or without Lora, the Little Hawks will still aim for success.

    Any word on who City’s coach might be? I heard possibly a former player.

  2. Tom says:

    Hopefully the next coach is someone that represents the Little Hawks with character and integrity. I’m not saying Loria didn’t have that, I just want that aspect to continue.

  3. Greg says:

    Yeah, City High was good not too long ago. Let’s get that going again.

  4. Phil says:

    Maybe Matt Gatens (a City High graduate) can take over the program. Forget professional basketball, Matt.
