Reitz Memorial Athletic Director Matt Weber said, “Heath came very highly recommended from many people around the state. We had some very strong applicants, but Heath emerged as the front runner with the selection committee. We look forward to what Heath can bring to the Memorial community.”

“My family and I are excited to be a part of Reitz Memorial High School,” Howington said. “As the next head coach, I am humbled and honored for the opportunity to lead this basketball program. I look forward to helping preserve and build upon the culture at Memorial. We are anxious to meet the team and get things underway.”
