LPHS hires new head varisty boys basketball coach

Posted by wlpo on May 3, 2011

A former Streator High School Bulldog will be the next basketball coach for the LP Cavaliers.  Jim Cherveney was hired to be head boys basketball coach Tuesday evening.

Cherveney comes from Plainfield East where he was a sophomore head coach last season.   Prior to that he was an assistant varsity coach.  Cherveney says his coaching style is up tempo.

He’s a graduate of Streator High School and Eastern Illinois University.  He’s working on a master’s degree through Olivet Nazarene.

LP Athletic Director Greg Sarver says they received 46 applications for the position that became open following the school board’s decision to not rehire former head coach Chad Hesterberg.
