SHARON SPRINGS, Kansas -

Wallace County has a new girls’ basketball coach.

Alicia Collett takes over the program in Sharon Springs after serving as an assistant coach. Collett replaces Landon Steele, who left after six seasons to become the head women’s coach at Northwest Kansas Technical College.

The Wildcats were 16-5 last season and advanced to the sub-state championship game. But Wallace County could be without leading scorer Rachel Kulhman, who is out four months with a foot injury.
