ANDALE — When McPherson High’s girls play Andale next season in basketball, it will be the first time they’ve played the Indians without coach Mark Kerschen on the sidelines.

Kerschen this week announced his resignation after 24 years as coach.

This past season, Andale was 19-4 and advanced to the Class 4A Division I State Tournament, where it was eliminated by Topeka Hayden.

Kerschen was 361-164, with two state championships, 1999 and 2002. His wife, Tammy, had served as his assistant for his entire tenure and she also resigned her post.
