FORT SMITH – There will be a new face on the sidelines for Southside Lady Maverick basketball as the Fort Smith Public Schools announced their new girl’s basketball coach this morning. Current Sallisaw Head Coach Robert Brunk will assume the position immediately following an announcement this morning.
The Roland native has been in the same position with the Lady Diamonds since 2016. Previously, he was the head coach at Sallisaw Central and Stilwell, and an assistant at Muldrow.
Brunk’s Sallisaw team had a challenging 2018-2019 season, going 8-17 before falling in regional tournament at Skiatook. He’ll take over for Steve Brown, who had coached the Lady Mavs since 2015.
