Clifton-Clyde’s Cassie Wurtz – Mom Of The Month Presented By Eccentricity

By Matt Browning 

Cassie Wurtz from Clifton-Clyde was chosen the Eccentricity Mom of the Month for November. Wurtz is the wife of Clifton-Clyde girls basketball Kieran Wurtz and mom to standout player, Shea Wurtz.

“The best thing I can do as a coach’s wife is to be consistently supportive, stay positive throughout the ups and downs, and have the ability to listen,” Cassie said. “There can be some late night game debriefing and watching game film in our house.”

Basketball is not something that happens from November to March for the Wurtz family. It is a lifestyle.

“We spend countless hours throughout the year in the gym together,” Wurtz said. “When Covid hit and we weren’t allowed to be in the school we put down a cement slap and basketball goal in our yard. Summer vacations are usually taken where we are playing travel ball.  Last year we went to Chicago, Illinois and Louisville, Kentucky.”

Wurtz also spends time teaching and coaching basketball to the youths in Clifton-Clyde, which helps them prepare for the middle school and high school levels.

“Working on the fundamentals of basketball and learning the basics early on is key,” Wurtz said. “I have found this to be a very rewarding job and am thankful to have always had kids wanting to learn the game.”

There have been two important memories that have stood out to Wurtz at Clifton-Clyde.

“It was exciting watching Kieran get his 100th career win as a head coach last year,” Wurtz said. “Also seeing him make it to state along with my daughter Shea was a great memory.”
