Misner Announces Retirement after 38 years of CR Basketball

Longtime Castle Rock basketball Coach Don Misner (center) announced his retirement after 38 years involvement with the Rocket basketball programs.

Longtime Castle Rock basketball coach Don Misner announced he would be retiring after a career of successfully coaching both boy’s and girl’s teams.

This past winter, Misner led the vaunted girls team to the WIAA State Championship game. Yakima is not a strange place for Misner as his teams frequently visited the Sundome. Over the last three years his girls teams finished their season there including a 2nd place and semi-final finish.

As the boys coach for 13 years, he took five teams to state that included a fifth place finish in 1986.

Misner expects to continue some involvement in CR basketball in the coming years, but says he defiantly wants a more relaxed, behind-the-scenes role the program.
