Centennial was the Minnesota State Class 4A Runner-up in 2009. They've always had a good program.

I looked this up a few weeks ago and IIRC Amundson won 6 games in 2 years at Columbia Heights. Four of those wins were in their own tournament.

Yeah that tournament is a joke...plus Columbia Heights girls program just isn't that good. Saw them play my brother's team a few years ago (maybe 3) and it wasn't pretty. It was a lose-lose situation for Amundson.

Does anyone know why in the world he left the situation he had at Mandan to go into the situation that awaited him at Columbia Heights? It doesn't compute.

I thought someone said to be closer to his kids, maybe grand kids too.

Greg's my uncle. not from Mandan though. He's a pretty cool guy. His Youngest son lives in Minneapolis (he used to be a bullpen catcher for the twins a couple years back) and thats it . His daughter is a trainer for the University of Oklahoma football team. She also used to be the head coach of the Saint Marys girls basketball team. And his oldest son also lives in Oklahoma. But he did get married and went there to live with his wife and her daughter. I believe she was actually at he last state tourney that Greg was in.
