The 5th Avenue Journal would like to congratulate the Triton College Men’s Basketball Coach Steve Christiansen on his teams 200th win. Coach Christiansen is no stranger to great accomplishments, he has in his coaching career been named the District 4 Coach-of-the-Year, the Region IV District A Coach-of-the-Year, and the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association (IBCA) Junior College Division II Coach-of-the-Year in 2011.

On his faculty page for Triton’s website, Coach Christiansen credits the values instilled in him by his parents as his reason for his success. “I was blessed to be raised by two parents who understood the value of discipline, hard work, and education”. Another great influence lead him further on his road to coaching success, ” I played for an outstanding coach in high school and had the opportunity to grow as a coach under him once I finished my schooling.”

In a more recent interview published by The Frankiln Park Herald, Coach Christiansen revealed a vital element needed for success as a basketball coach – Love. “You have to have a love for the game” states Christiansen, as he also tries to give young athletes something to consider while they dream of fame and fortune in college sports … the academics. To be eligible, you must remain in good academic standing, and thus balance sports and studies well. Christiansen warns “It’s the student part that is challenging”. There are still some games left in this season, so we encourage you to show your school spirit, and go cheer on Coach Christiansen and our great basketball team! Here is what the remainder of the season looks like:
