It was just a short stint of summer ball at Lake Fenton High School between coaching stops for Jeremy Trent. The former head coach of Swartz Creek, who resigned in the winter shortly after the Dragons lost in district play to rival Fenton, will be the new head coach of Flint Powers Catholic.
Trent took the Lake Fenton job this spring and coached the Blue Devils in summer ball including a trip to team camp at Hope College. He answered the call from Powers and, after what he described as a very difficult decision, chose to take the reins of one of the state’s best high school basketball programs. Trent replaces veteran head coach Tim Herman who left Powers after amassing a record of 120-34 and winning a state championship in 2009.
Trent’s career record is 119-58 and is probably best-known for his resurrection of the program at Bentley, a longtime laughingstock in the sport prior to compiling a 76-38 record in five seasons with the Bulldogs.
Powers will, as is tradition, start their season in early December against Flint Northwestern.
