The Salpointe Catholic High School boys basketball program has found its new head coach.

Jerry Zander, who coached the junior varsity team this past season, was promoted Thursday to replace Sean Loomer.

Loomer coached the Lancers for three years, posting a 48-40 record. He resigned to pursue business interests in Phoenix.

Zander brings 10 years of coaching experience. He coached at Archbishop Murphy Catholic High in Everett, Wash., where he was named Northwest A league coach of the year after the 2003-04 season. He also led his team to a league title in 2004.

“I am very excited to be a part of the Salpointe men’s basketball program,” Zander said in a news release. ” . . . In the year that I have been affiliated with Salpointe, I have been impressed with the faculty, staff, coaches and students.

“I look forward to leading this program to a position of strength and pride for the entire Lancer community.”

Zander will join the Salpointe math department in the fall. He is currently teaching math at University High.


Desert Christian scored three runs in the seventh inning to defeat Tanque Verde 9-7 on Thursday.

Junior pitcher Chelsea Harris finished with three RBIs and also struck out 14.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.
