Jeannie Boyer resigns as Jackson girls basketball coach

After 10 seasons, Jeannie Boyer has resigned as head girls basketball coach at Jackson High School.

Boyer said she and her husband, Joel, hope to have children and foresees a potential conflict in time commitments.

“I didn’t think I could be a good enough coach and a good enough mom, with the amount of hours you have to put in,” she said.

The Timberwolves finished 13-10 this past season and reached the Northwest 4A District tournament, despite losing junior Kelli Kingma to a knee injury in December. Kingma, who has committed to Washington, helped Jackson place fourth at the 4A state tournament in 2012.

Boyer said she will continue to support the team as a fan.

“It’s been a wonderful experience,” she said.
