    Crean Lutheran has hired Westcliff University’s Kyle Rouse as its girls basketball coach, the school announced.

    Rouse led Westcliff’s women’s basketball team the past four seasons. Westcliff, an NAIA program, finished 13-13 this past season, falling to Embry-Riddle of Arizona in the first round of the Cal Pac Conference tournament.

    Rouse replaces twin sisters Bianca and Rachael Ziemann, who resigned earlier this month after five seasons.

    “With careful thought, prayer, and seeking counsel from our inner circle, we have decided to step down,” Bianca Ziemann posted on social media. “It’s been an honor to serve and mentor so many amazing young women past and present.”

    The sisters, who played at Edison, compiled a 102-34 record at Crean Lutheran with a pair of Empire League titles, including one this past season.

    The duo continues to coach Flames Basketball Club for youth girls and operate their family-owned Body Technology personal training business.

    Crean Lutheran also made five consecutive playoff appearances under the twins, including a runner-up finish in CIF-SS Division 3AA to Santa Monica in 2019-20.

    Crean Lutheran is set to the join the Century Conference for the next two years.
