Prep boys basketball: Ross elevates JV coach Lane to head position

Ross High School has a new head boys basketball coach.

David Lane received school-board approval Thursday night to take over for Brian Gunter, who resigned earlier this month after three seasons and an 18-51 record.

“David is a talented young coach who brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to the position,” Ross principal Brian Martin said in a release. “I think our kids are excited to play for him.”

Lane is a 2008 Ross graduate who played for the Rams and went on to be a four-year collegiate player and two-year captain at Mount St. Joseph. He graduated from MSJ in 2012, majoring in sports management and minoring in business.

Lane has coached in the Ross program for five years, the last four as the head junior varsity coach. He led the reserve Rams to 18 wins last season.

“I am very honored, humbled and blessed to have been selected to be the next head boys basketball coach at Ross High School,” Lane said in a release. “I am excited to get the ball rolling.”
