Eleven state championships and a total of 508 victories. That is what Parker native Kelly Flynn (left) achieved during the 27 years he guided the girls team at South Sioux City, Neb. Then he left the sideline, stepping away from coaching following the 2011 season.
Flynn returns to the Nebraska basketball scene this year. He is the new girls coach at Fremont High School, which is located about 35 miles northwest of Omaha.
A University of South Dakota graduate, Flynn was an all-state player as a Parker senior in 1976. During his career with the Pheasants he played for legendary coach Gayle Hoover.
Flynn led South Sioux City to 16 appearances in the Class B state tourney. His overall record with the Cardinals was 508-128. Among the 11 state championships were six consecutive from 2000 through 2005. Flynn’s team during 2001 was ranked No. 1 in the country by USA TODAY.
