Varsity Head Coach
Lady Trojans Basketball

My name is Andy Hatt, and I am excited to enter my first off-season as the head coach for the Lady Trojans.  I am a 2001 graduate of Laingsburg High School (Laingsburg, MI). After high school, I attended Central Michigan University (Fire Up Chips!) where I received a bachelor's degree with a double major in English and History, and a minor in Athletic Coaching.  After graduating from CMU, I completed my teaching certification at Spring Arbor University.  For the next six years, I taught English, coached football, and coached varsity girls basketball at Bronson High School.  For the past four years I have been a 10th grade English teacher here at Sturgis High School. My first year here, I continued to coach at Bronson, but for the past three years, I have been the freshman boy's basketball coach here at Sturgis, and this last year I started coaching football again.

I am married to my wonderful wife Kari (Newman), a 2001 Sturgis graduate, and we have three children. Norah (5), Jay (7), and Tessa (10).  Kari is the varsity girls' swimming coach here at SHS. When I'm not teaching or coaching, I love to travel, read, and hike.

I couldn't be more excited to start this season, and I look forward to many more to come!
