PH. - 563-588-7738
EMAIL COACH GORTON

Greg Gorton is beginning his eighth year at Loras College. The team's success includes the Iowa Conference championship in 2006-07 and the IIAC Tournament Championship in the 2007-08 season. The team has represented the Iowa Intercollegiate Athletic Conference in the NCAA Division III Championships two of the past four seasons.

Last year, the team had a 15-11 overall record and a 10-6 conference record. Over the past five seasons the Duhawks have 17 Academic All-Conference selections and a conference record of 52-16. The team also spent its second season in the brand new Athletic & Wellness Center - which is considered one of the top basketball arenas and weight training facilities in the Midwest. In addition to his basketball duties, Greg was the athletic department's academic liason, serving over 550 campus student-athletes.
 
Coach Gorton adds, "As a student-athlete, if you are interested in competing on a national scale in basketball, utilizing the best facilities, and can balance that with a desire to achieve great things in the classroom...there is not a better school like ours in the country."

Gorton came to Loras College from the University of St. Thomas (Minn.), where he played for and coached with Steve Fritz.  The Tommies are a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference power, and during Gorton's eight years as a member of the coaching staff, St. Thomas posted a 155-58 overall record and a 121-39 league mark, with four MIAC titles.
The Staples, Minn. native graduated from St. Thomas in 1991 with a degree in mathematics.  Greg and his wife, Kris, have three daughters, Kate (10), Isabelle (6), and Emily (3).
