Sterling College’s, Randy Stange – Blue Dragon Spotlight Presented By Hutchinson Community College

By Matt Browning 

Randy Stange, the head men’s basketball coach at Sterling College, was chosen for the Hutchinson Community College profile for October. Stange both played and coached basketball for the Blue Dragons, as well as being the athletic director.

“It (Hutch CC) meant a lot,” Stange said. “It was a huge part of my life. My dad lives there. I have family there. I never really left and I continue to listen and follow the games online. It’s always been a part of me.”

Stange comes to Sterling from Johnson County Community College, where he was the athletic director. Not only was Sterling appealing because of how close it was to home, but the challenge of the job excites Stange.

“Sterling College has lost 25 in a row,” Stange said. “Our schedule is tough. Our league is tough. We have a lot to overcome. It’s a real challenge. The main difference between coaching and administration is being involved in player’s lives and shaping and giving long-term guidance. It’s a big impact.”

Stange said one of the greatest appeals Hutchinson Community College should have on prospective students is the commitment to academics.

“There is such a quality of education,” Stange said. “There is a commitment to it. From the president throughout the institution. There is a lot of good that I was able to be a part of.”
