Dalrymple named to Indiana All Star staff

WASHINGTON — In the last 13 years in Elnora, Brent Dalrymple has led the North Daviess Cougars to four sectional championships and two semi-state appearances. All that hard work is finally getting recognition from the rest of the state.

Dalrymple, who just finished his 13th season leading the Cougars has been selected as an assistant for the Indiana High School All Star Team. This is an outstanding honor, but for Dalrymple being selected as a coach for the team means a little bit more to him.

"In the coaching profession, I've basically had two goals," Dalrymple said. "One of those was to win a state championship, I'm still trying to achieve that. The other one, quite honestly was to be a coach of the All Star Team.

I think it's one of the highest honors that's given to an Indiana High School basketball coach. It means a whole lot to me personally, and with that it certainly means that what we've done at North Daviess is being noticed throughout the state." Dalrymple will be on the staff headed by Carmel head coach Scott Heady, who has won the last two Class 4A state championships. The other assistant will be Bluffton head coach Kevin Leising. Dalrymple said upon hearing the news, he was caught completely off guard the news that he would be on the staff.

"I was very surprised," Dalrymple said. "Matter of fact I had to ask him twice if that's what I thought he was talking about." Dalrymple said he will report June 7 to start working with the team, and the Junior All Star games will take place June 10 and 11 with the locations to be determined.

The Indiana and Kentucky All Star teams will play a home and home series in back to back days. The first game will take place June 14 at Freedom Hall in Louisville, and the following night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

The Cougars have won 15 or more games for eight straight seasons, and Dalrymple said it¹s nice to see the school get recognition through his selection.

"If you look over the last 5-8 years at what Washington has put on the floor, the product Barr-Reeve and us (North Daviess) and Loogootee have put on the floor," Dalrymple said.

"When I came down here in 2000, I hadn't heard of North Daviess or about this part of the state. I think it's been pretty well documented that our brand of basketball is being recognized and appreciated throughout the state."
