Walters resigns at North Harrison

March 18, 2014

North Harrison varsity boys' basketball coach Greg Walters has resigned his head coaching position with the Cougars after guiding the squad to a 9-12 season.

His resignation was approved at last Wednesday's meeting of the North Harrison Community School Corp. Board of Trustees.

Walters spent five seasons on the bench at North Harrison, compiling a 44-63 record overall. Taking the job in 2009, it was the first varsity coaching gig for Walters, who, before then, was an eight-year assistant at Clarksville.

During Walters' tenure, the North Harrison boys' basketball program came back to life in the Mid-Southern Conference. The three years prior to his arrival, the Cougars tallied 11 wins during that span.

Walters won seven games in his inaugural season (2009-10), including the program's first win during sectional play since 2005.

In the 2011-12 season, the Cougars came out with a winning record, going 11-10. The following year was the best under the direction of Walters. North Harrison put together a 14-8 season, the most wins since tallying 17 in 2003-04.

This past year was up and down for North Harrison. The Cougars started the season with a 2-6 record before going on a five-game winning streak. Following the string of wins, the Cougars dropped five straight, including tight overtime decisions versus Crawford County and Providence.

Walters said he plans to remain at North Harrison Middle School as a social studies teacher.
