Not far at all.

“When this opened up, like I stated, this has been a dream of mine to be a girls basketball coach at a higher college. Exactly where I’m teaching there currently, I couldn’t pass up the chance,” Parry stated Friday.

She worked at Syracuse Higher, South Ogden Junior and Rocky Mountain Junior as an assistant coach. Parry hasn’t coached for the final couple years but she’s been teaching at Roy.

Parry desires to engage feeder schools to attempt to enhance the quantity of players that come out for the system, which is a single challenge she sees.

“Another challenge I see is … taking more than any system that is been ran so extended by a person so amazing. I do issues distinctive, so it is going to be a bit distinctive for the girls and I just hope they’re prepared to get in,” Parry stated.

The Royals went six-16 this season and six-six in Area two. 5 of their prime scorers have been juniors or sophomores, led by Nicole Williams and Jerzee Hart.

Roy is moving from 6A to 5A subsequent season and will join Area five with Bonneville, Clearfield, Northridge and Box Elder.
