Coach Burda steps down
     2013-01-31      By The Gering Citizen   
Megan Burda, who coached the Scottsbluff Lady Bearcat volleyball team for the past two years, announced she was stepping down.
Megan, who also teaches fourth grade at Longfellow Elementary, said her younger children are getting involved in different activities, so she needed time to spend with her family.

Her husband, Mike Burda, coaches the high school girls’ basketball team. Megan said having two coaches in the family can sometimes take a lot out of them.

Megan took over as head coach in 2011 from Shana Dick. Before then, she spent three seasons as a varsity assistant under Dick and also coached the junior varsity. She has also coached the freshman and seventh grade teams for a number of years.

Megan said she was thankful for the opportunity to coach and would miss working with some great kids.
