An Iola-Scandinavia High School graduate has made it easy for Thunderbird fans to see the history of the school’s boys’ basketball program.
Jason Vandenberg, a 1993 ISHS graduate, has set up a website that includes statistics from all but four seasons dating back to 1979. The missing seasons are 1994-95, 1997-98, 2000-01 and 2001-02.
Vandenberg, who now lives in Appleton, obtained the statistics from current coach Sam Bertsch and former coaches.
“I do it for fun,” he said. “I probably spent about 40 hours on it so far. I get the stats at the end of the season and it takes me about 1 1/2 hours.”
The website address is home.roadrunner.com/~jvandenberg/ISHS. The site can also be accessed through the boys’ basketball page on the Iola-Scandinavia School District website.
