MOUNT VERNON — Marcie Alberts is returning home. Home to high school basketball and home to the Knox County area.
Alberts, whose father Mark coached at Danville and Fredericktown in the 1970s, was named head coach of the Mount Vernon girls basketball team recently.
“I missed it (coaching high school). Division III was a little bit different as far as what you’re allowed to do with the kids. I’m looking forward to being able to get back in there and working with my players more on a regular basis. Teaching them, coaching them, those kinds of things,” Alberts said.
Alberts was head coach at NCAA Division III Heidelberg for the last five years after seven impressive years at Orrville High School. Things didn’t go as well at Heidelberg and Alberts was ready to get back to the high school level when she found out about the opening at Mount Vernon. She was already familiar with the area, as she was born in Mount Vernon and spent most of her younger years here before her dad took a job at Wooster. She also had friends and family in the area and wanted a more stable place to raise her two children (Jordyn, 10, and Madysen, 5).
