 We are only a few months removed from watching the Lady Bishops finish second in the state, and though we knew we’d seen the last of this senior class today we found out that we had seen the last of their coach too.

Earlier this afternoon Rosecrans athletic director Tim Rucker released a statement saying that Lady Bishop head coach Gale Kirkbride had steped down as the head coach of the Lady Bishops basketball team.

Kirkbride said that a change in his work schedule lead to the decision to step away from a program he helped restore to glory. Kirkbride helped guide the Lady Bishops to two district runner up finishes and a state runner up finish during his time as the head coach of the red and black.
