Program History

Though SJCS girls basketball has been in existence since the school began in 1988, it wasn’t until the 7th SJCS girls basketball coach took over that the program really took off.  Coach Danny Maggart heard about St. Joseph Christian through his brother-in-law, Jeff Robertson.  Initially the school asked Maggart to lead the cheer program for the 1997-98 school year.  Though willing to do whatever the school needed, Coach Maggart was relieved to discover that the incoming girls basketball coach was more than happy to trade responsibilities.  In his first year, Maggart’s team won only 6 games.  By 2004 the SJCS Lady Lions had won 4 district championships and appeared in 3 state “final four” tournaments at the class 1 and class 2 levels.  Danny Maggart retired from coaching in 2010 just as another great crop of athletes was about to bloom.  Coach David Johnson took charge of the program for the next two years and won 2 more district titles.  From 2000 to 2012, the St. Joseph Christian girls basketball program was 216-73.  In 2015, St. Joseph Christian had too few players to even field a team without joining forces with Bishop LeBlond.  Coach Erin Patrick has been tasked with returning SJCS to its form
