Harrisburg names new girls basketball coach


Harrisburg Athletics announced that former Osage girls basketball coach Jaryt Hunziker will be taking the helm of the girls basketball program for the 2024-25 season, on Tuesday morning.

Hunziker is no stranger to Mid-Missouri, either. He most recently coached the Indians in Osage Beach, but also had a very memorable run at Boonville High School. In his time with the Pirates, he led the program to its first-ever state championship, in 2021.

Throughout his career, he's brought his teams to a state title, two final four appearances, six district championships, eight conference titles and a 358-172 overall record, as he's also coached at Scotland County and Clark County.

In a release from the athletic department, Hunziker said, "Our family is looking forward to becoming a part of the Bulldog community and the start of something special at Harrisburg."

The Harrisburg girls team is coming off of a 13-14 finish in 2023-24, falling in the district semifinals to Salisbury in Feb.
