Three new coaches take over teams in the SouthWest Suburban

SHARE Three new coaches take over teams in the SouthWest Suburban

Plenty of changes are in store this year.

The Southwest Suburban Conference has just four full teams and three of them have new coaches.

Lincoln-Way Co-op’s Skip Adamson is gone and has been replaced by Kim Lago. Lago is assisted by Allison Hack, who was Andrew’s coach last year. Hack, who will also be the boys coach at Lincoln-Way next spring, was replaced by Sarah Thompson at Andrew.

At Homewood-Flossmoor, Carrie Kliver replaced Kathryn Stolzenbach.

Sandburg’s Mike White, who has been coaching at the Orland Park school since the 1991-92 campaign, is the only coach from the conference who is back.

When the season ends, there will also be a new individual conference champion in what looks like a wide-open field.

Lincoln-Way’s Kaila Pohrte, who unseated three-time champion Jamie Valla of Andrew last year, is not expected to defend her all-around title after suffering an ACL injury two months ago.
