Saint Louis School will be making coaching changes in basketball and soccer, according to athletic director Wade Okamura.

Keith Spencer, who spent four years as the head coach of the Crusaders basketball team, will not return for next season. Saint Louis is coming off a 5-5 ILH season.

Don Mangiarelli, the soccer coach for two seasons, will not be back for a third year.

“We appreciate their efforts and contributions, and we wish them luck in their future endeavors,” Okamura said.

Saint Louis is looking to hire the basketball and soccer coaches as soon as possible.

The deadline to send resumes for the basketball position is April 15.

Applicants for the basketball and soccer positions can be sent to Okamura at

    This move is baffling basketball-wise. The guy lead them to their best finish in years and sees that the school wants to go in a different direction? I hope they enjoy being bottom-feeders for the next couple of years. He did the best he could in a tough league.

    So the soccer coach gets two years in the most competitve league in the state? He had very little to work with and St. Louis struggled to field a team. He managed to keep them competitive in the ILH which is a soccer powerhouse. Very disappointing to see this.
