On Monday, South Dakota coaching legend Jill Christensen of Parker officially announced her retirement. The announcement came first from New Era Sports out of Parker, SD.
Christensen is the all-time winningest coach in South Dakota history with 837 total victories. In 2017, Christensen surpassed the 800 wins mark.
Mondayâ€™s retirement announcement closes the door on an epic 36-year career with Parker high school. Along with her record-holding wins total, Christensen has 14 state tournament appearances and a state championship (Parker/Marion) in 1990 for her career as well.
In 2016, SDPB had the chance to catch up with Christensen during the Class B State Volleyball Tournament in Huron.
