We are excited to announce the addition of a new staff member to our program. Coach Ryan Noel started his coaching career at Nemaha Valley Junior High in Seneca in 2002, where he coached Junior High Football, Basketball, and Track. He left Seneca in 2006 to take over a struggling Valley Heights Lady Mustang Basketball program.
In year 2 of the turn-around, the Lady Mustangs earned a State Tournament berth, but were eliminated in the first round by eventual champion Berean Academy. Two years later, the Lady Mustangs returned to state, only to be defeated by runner-up Hill City in the first round. Coach Noel left the Lady Mustang program after 5 years with a record of 69-49.
Ryan also coaches golf at Valley Heights High School and enjoys educating fourth grade students throughout the day. His wife Janelle is a first grade teacher and volleyball coach at Marysville High School. They reside in Marysville with their two children, daughter Kolbie and son Ethan.
With the addition of Coach Noel, our program will be expanding to north central Kansas. Ryan will work with our 12U/13U(7th & 8th grade) team in Marysville and begin play in late February. His team will be known as “LP 13U Blue” and his student-athletes will be from north central Kansas.
The 12U/13U team here in northeast Kansas will be known as “LP 13U Red” and begin play in early January as usual.
