Demons look for new coach

The Demons are looking for a new coach.

Glenwood Springs High School girls basketball coach Charlie Brenzikofer stepped down Wednesday, after two seasons as head coach.

Brenzikofer, who directed the Glenwood girls program through a difficult transition, announced the decision to his team during a meeting Wednesday afternoon.

He also officially informed athletic director Steve Cable of his desire to leave the position.

Cable said the school will open a search immediately for Brenzikofer’s successor.

Cable said that Brenzikofer told the team that he is ready to move on for personal and family reasons.

Brenzikofer led the Glenwood Springs girls to a 13-9 record this season, including an 8-4 record in the rugged 4A Western Slope League.

They also reached the District Tournament final field and nearly secured a state playoff berth, before falling to Palisade in a game to determine the tourney’s final qualifier.

Brenzikofer took over the GSHS girls program after one season of coaching by Bryan Whiting.

Whiting had succeeded longtime coach Mike Vidakovich, who now is the girls coach at Buena Vista High School. His team at Buena Vista qualified for the 32-team 3A State Tournament this season.
