Glanzer Retires as Head Boys Basketball Coach after 37 Years




ARMOUR, S.D. – Longtime Head Boys Basketball Coach Burnell Glanzer is retiring after 37 years of coaching in Armour.  Glanzer’s 37-year career ends with a 617-209 overall record with stints as coach of the Armour Packers and the cooperative Tripp-Delmont/Armour, which formed in the 2007-08 school year.  The Armour resident has won 75 percent of the games in his career and averaged 16.68 wins per season. He has Class B state championships in 1978, 1979 and 1997 and has qualified for the state tournament 12 times.  Glanzer, who holds the state record for most consecutive wins with 64, a feat his teams accomplished from 1978 to 1980,  is the second coach with more than 600 wins to retire after last basketball season.  Gary Munsen stepped down from the head coaching job at Mitchell at the end of this past season.

    Way to steal all of this from the Mitchell Daily Republic and pass it off as your own. What a joke.

    @Jimbo – Just a observation for you.   I also saw this same story in the Argus Leader, on KELO-TV’s website, and on KSFY-TV.  I’m thinking this was probably a story that was aquired by the DRG News through the Associated Press or something like that….more than likely it very well was where the Mitchell Daily Republic got it.

    Ya see, Jimbo, news is passed around from media organizations all over the state so more people are aware of it.  If you need any help putting your mind around this concept….let me know.
