STREATOR — Streator High School named Beau Albert its next varsity girls basketball coach.
The board voted 5-2 in favor of Albert's hiring Tuesday, with board members Bill Darrow and Steve Biroschik voting no.
Albert is the Bulldogs varsity baseball coach and served as sophomore girl' basketball coach and varsity assistant this past season.
Albert succeeds Rory Bedeker, who will take the school's athletics director post in the middle of next school year. Last season the Lady Bulldogs posted a 4-24 record and won a first-round regional game.
