LOUISVILLE, NE – Two Class D1 basketball championships as an assistant coach and a deep run in the Class D1 football playoffs as a co-head coach are two memories that will stick with Adam Vogt during his time at Lourdes Central Catholic High School.

The third-year teacher, who attended high school at Syracuse, announced he has been named the new boys basketball coach at Louisville High School. He will also serve as an assistant coach on the football team, while teaching in the middle school.

Vogt takes over for Tyler Zahn, who resigned after a 19-7 season. The Lions lose seven seniors, but return two players who saw significant playing time, Hunter Klein and Brady Geise. Louisville is two-years removed from making the state tournament.

The foundation of the Louisville Basketball Association (LBA) and the love of basketball in town really excited Vogt to take this position.

“They love their basketball up there. They got this whole youth organization, so that’s kind of something off my plate that I don’t have to really organize or get started, because it’s a great foundation already there. We got about 55-60 kids, from second grade to eighth grade, already signed up for youth camp this summer. The foundation is there, I just got to try not to mess it up too bad.”

Vogt says he jumped at the opportunity to become the next Louisville boys basketball coach to make his fiance’s commute to work in Omaha easier. Their wedding is planned for the summer.
