The Friday before spring break began, Street was told that he would no longer be coaching the Wildcats, ending his coaching tenure after posting 126 wins.
“I loved every minute of coaching this team,” said Street. “We’ve got a great program here and we’ve seen a lot of success come to this team for the past nine years. I’m going to miss coaching.”
Street’s tenure as the boys’ basketball coach began in 2001. The team won just five games in his first two seasons, but have been in the playoffs every year since, starting in the 2003-2004 campaign. Under Street’s tutelage, the Wildcats won a Region 5 title in the 2003-2004 season, while finishing second in Region 5 in both the 2007-2008 and 2008-2009 seasons.
This year’s 16-7 team had five juniors in the starting lineup while finishing in a tie for second in Region 6 behind Bountiful High School.
Street’s overall record at Woods Cross was 126-120, with 36 of his losses coming in his first two seasons as head coach. He will remain at the school as a teacher of Algebra and Pre-Calculus.
