Girls coach

Ben Wertenberger

When the Marysville High School girls’ head basketball position came open, Ben Wertenberger immediately put his name in as a candidate for the position.

The position wasn’t available when he was hired as a math teacher in 2018, but it came open last month after Amy Renyer resigned as a teacher and coach. Wertenberger was the freshman boys’ basketball coach last winter and he gave up that position to take over the girls’ program.
