Naperville North has named Jeff Powers as its new boys varsity basketball coach.
Powers compiled a 201-110 record during 11 years at Timothy Christian and spent last season as a York assistant. Powers, who will be a physical education teacher at the school, follows Mark Lindo, a member of the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
After nearly two decades, Lindo stepped down in March, though he remains at North as a teacher and baseball assistant. Lindo has also been inducted into the Illinois High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Under Lindo's direction, the Huskies won sectional titles in 1994 and 1998, but during the past two seasons they have finished a combined eight games under .500.
Powers takes over a program with significant varsity experience. The Huskies figure to return four proven players between 6 feet, 5 inches and 6-9, as well as a class that won the DuPage Valley Conference championship on the sophomore level.
