(MENA) Thomas Powell has resigned as the Mena Bearcats Varsity Basketball Coach, after just three seasons at the helm.
Powell has accepted an assistant coaching position with Bentonville West High School. It was Powell’s first head coaching job, when he took the position in 2016, while at Mena.
Powell amassed a 50-35 overall record while at Mena, guiding the Bearcats to their first conference championship since 2005, this past season, enroute to a 19-9 overall record and 10-2 in conference play.
According to Mena Athletic Administrator Shane Torix, the district will commence a search for its next head basketball coach, as soon as possible.
