Finberg to Coach Boys and Girls Hoops at C-Falls

By Beacon Staff

KALISPELL – Columbia Falls boys basketball coach Cary Finberg plans to coach the Wildkats girls’ team next year, as well.

Finberg said the possibility has been in the back of his mind for a while because he has two daughters, including one who will be a freshman in the fall. But he says the boys program is very important to him and he didn’t want to give that up.

Activities director John Thompson has minimized the number of games where the boys play at home and the girls are on the road on the same night. When that does happen, Finberg says he’ll rely on his assistants to coach one of the games.

If the school board approves the hiring, Finberg would take over for Dan Fairbank, who resigned after four seasons as girls’ coach. His teams posted a 24-2 record in conference play over the past three seasons.
