That’s the number of seasons Dan Budziszewski was the head coach at Harbor Creek.
Budziszewski teams went 165-146-3 between 1982 and 2013. His victory total trails only Mina George (230) and Gus Anderson (167) among District 10 head coaches who spent their entire careers in charge of Erie County programs.
The highlight of Budziszewski’s tenure were Harbor Creek’s 2004 and 2007 teams. Each reached District 10 Class AA championship games, with the former losing to Grove City and the latter to Wilmington.
Budziszewski also was a six-year assistant with Harbor Creek’s coaching staff before he took over for John Ballard.
