Last month Branson head football coach Dan Henderson announced his retirement and the search for a replacement began. Today the school announced it would also have to search for head coach for another one if its programs.
Becky Lipasek has announced her retirement as the leader of the Lady Pirate Volleyball Program. Lipasek spent three years as the helm after coming over from a successful stint at Reeds Spring. She led the Lady Wolves to two Final Four appearances. Before that she won two State Titles at El Dorado Springs. Her career record stands at 577-236-44.
In a school press release Activities Director David Large was very complimentary of Lipasek:
“Becky solidified our volleyball program and took us to a new level of competition in the COC,” said David Large, BHS activities director. “Her entire career was spent working with young ladies who wanted to not only play the game, but play the game well. She is leaving the court after a phenomenal 27-year run in high school athletics. We wish her the best on her retirement.”
