Posted: December 27, 2012 - 1:12am
Juneau-Douglas High School's Matt Newhouse powers a shot against East Anchorage. Newhouse, now 46, is the girl's basketball coach at Wood River (ID.). He has taught in many capacities since graduating in 1992 from the Univ. of Alaska-Fairbanks. After JDHS he played for Salisbury State in Maryland for college hoops. He has coached basketball in Fairbanks, Juneau and Angoon, Ak., and was boys' varsity coach at Seattle (Wash.) Academy from 1996-98-earning "Coach of the Year" honors. From 1998-2001 Newhouse was girls' varsity coach at Holy Names Academy in Seattle, a private all-girls college prep school-including a "Coach of the Year" honor. In March 2011, the Academy's basketball team crowned an undefeated season (29-0) by winning the Washington state 3A girls championship-first in school history. Newhouse was recently hired by Blaine County School District to replace Casey Kelly in the Wood River High School Special Education department while she takes a family medical leave in the coming year. Newhouse's most recent teaching assignment prior to being hired here was as a high school special education teacher in Lapeer, Mich. Newhouse was a girl' varsity basketball coach from 2007-09 at Lapeer West. Newhouse and his wife Heather along with children Levi, 11, and Sawyer, 7, moved to that area last summer.
