The Skagit Valley College Athletic Department is proud to announce that Carl Howell, Men’s Basketball Head Coach, has been named among the nation’s top 50 Most Impactful Junior College (JUCO) Coaches in Men’s Basketball. In an article titled, 50 Most Impactful Coaches in JUCO Men’s Basketball, published by Silver Waves Media, author Jake Stanbrough writes that the list recognizes current junior college men’s basketball coaches who have made and continue to make an outstanding impact on their players, programs, and the game itself.
“Coach Howell continues to build a coaching career that elevates his players and the game of men’s basketball,” said SVC Interim Athletic Director Nancy Anderson. “The Cardinals set many College records this year, which reflects his commitment to excellence at SVC and for the sport.”
From the article: “As the winningest coach (win percentage) in NWAC [Northwest Athletic Conference] history, Coach Howell has had an amazing impact on Men’s Basketball. Howell has the second best winning percentage of any NW coach across all levels, behind only Mark Few of Gonzaga. His impact has been felt from the Division I to NAIA as he has helped hundreds of kids play at the next level. Prior to returning to Skagit Valley, Howell boasted a 363-109 record. During his first year at Skagit Valley he started right where he left off, finishing with a record of 25-4.” To stay connected with the Cardinals, visit https://athletics.skagit.edu/
