A little over a week and a half after Garry Lowry stepped down after one season as the Beloit High School Girls Basketball coach, the Lady Trojans have found their new leader. The USD 273 Board of Education approved a supplemental list on Monday night that included Shauna Remus as the new head coach for the Beloit girls.
Remus is no stranger to the district or the area. She has been employed by USD 273 for nearly 15 years and is currently a 2nd Grade teacher at Beloit Elementary. A native of Glen Elder, Remus graduated from Waconda East High School in 1997 and Fort Hays State University in 2001. This will be her first head coaching gig in high school sports, but she did spend time as the junior high girls head coach at Beloit from 2004-2008.
Her resume as a player on the basketball court was outstanding. After a stellar career at Waconda East, she went on to have great success at Fort Hays State from 1997-2001. Among her many accomplishments, she finished her career 2nd all-time in scoring at FHSU with 1,791 points. In 2015, she was passed by current Plainville coach Kate Lehman, but she still sits in 3rd place all-time in scoring for the Tigers. She also finished her career with the most free throw makes and attempts in Fort Hays State history, going 480-592, Lehman also passed her in those categories, putting her in 2nd all-time. She was also a four-time all-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference selection and was inducted into the Tiger Sports Hall of Fame in 2010.
With those credentials, it is clear to see that Remus knows the game of basketball well. At Beloit, she will inherit a team that went 15-7 overall and tied for the NCAA regular season title with Russell with a 10-2 record in 2016-17. It was the third consecutive year that Beloit had won at least a share of the league title.
Here at KD Country 94 & Z 96.3 Sports, we had a chance to talk with Remus about the new position. With some unknowns due to the fact she hasn’t been a head coach at this level before, Remus discussed what her coaching philosophy will be.
Remus also commented on how much the previous success that the Lady Trojans have had means to her as she takes over the program.
