The Tech Tigers have a new boys basketball coach after having two different bench bosses during the 2019-2020 season.

Christian Pekarek takes over for Mike Trewick, who stepped in halfway through last season in place of Brent Petermeier. Petermeier's tenure ended abruptly in mid-January for unknown reasons.

Pekarek is an Upsala native who played basketball at Bemidji State before taking a job in Sartell as a math teacher.

"I am honored, blessed, and thankful to have the opportunity to be the next head coach of Tiger basketball," Pekarek said in a statement.  I am excited for the future and the direction that the program is heading. I couldn't be more ready to start this journey with all of these young men and coaches in the Tiger Basketball Program"
