New Moffat County girls basketball coach named

Matt Ray to take over reigns of high school varsity team



Matt Ray

After being without a coach for the first time in 15 years, finding a new coach took just one week for the Moffat County High School girls varsity basketball team.

Matt Ray, the assistant and junior varsity coach, was named the head coach of the team today, almost one week after coach Craig Mortensen announced his retirement.

Ray led the girls junior varsity team to a 16-3 record in 2009-10.

“We felt Matt was the obvious choice for the job,” said Richard Wildenhaus, MCHS athletic director. “He earned his spot as head coach.”

I learned so much from Coach Mortensen just by watching the way he coached and interacted with his players. Thank you very much Coach.
