Junction City High School Athletics will be losing two head coaches at the end of this year. Blue Jays Baseball coach Drew Biery has decided to resign from coaching the baseball team. Coach Nate Schmitt has also decided to resign from his basketball coaching duties.

Coach Biery plans to teach at Manhattan High School and open up his own baseball academy in Manhattan, where he has 13 teams lined up to play at his academy.

Biery believes that he left the baseball team in a better condition than how he found it.

“There’s a new expectation here for baseball. You’ve gotta give all the credit to the kids because we’ve worked them really hard. There’s a lot of good kids coming back next year. They’re gonna field another good team next year, and I hope the success continues,” Biery told the Junction City Daily Union

Coach Schmitt will be returning to Lakin as he looks to become their next Athletic Director. Schmitt had coached at Lakin before, where he won a State Championship.

Schmitt also wanted to be closer to his family in Lakin. Schmitt believes he left a mark on the Junction City Basketball program,

“I would definitely say that we did a lot in one year,” he told the Junction City Daily Union. “Not just with the high school program but with everything. Whether it was the youth or middle school or offseason or summer … we had a lot of things we were improving, I feel like. I think we were trying to instill our culture. We didn’t skip any steps.”
