Kody Kirkpatrick, a 2009 graduate of New Berlin High School, has been hired as the new head boys basketball coach at Glenwood High School.

Kirkpatrick has been the head coach at Riverton for the past five seasons, compiling a 77-59 overall record. The Hawks have gone 20-13, 26-6 and 10-5 in the last three seasons.

Kirkpatrick has also been hired as a special education teacher at GHS, and Ball-Chatham Director of Athletics Dusty Burk led a quick, but extensive, search after Todd Blakeman’s resignation last month.
