Coach Parker took over the Loveland girls basketball program in 2017 and led the Lady Tigers to an ECC Championship and a 13-1 record last season. He is upbeat about winning his off-the-court battle.

“My road is long and my treatments will be aggressive, but I will win,” said Parker.

“Coach Parker is in all of our thoughts & prayers every day,” said Brian Conatser, Loveland Athletic Director. “We are wishing the best for him and his family during this extremely difficult journey. Darnell has been a phenomenal ambassador for Loveland Athletics and has represented our community in the highest regard. We appreciate his year-round commitment to our girls basketball program, and the support he shows for all of his athletes.”

Scheduling and Planning update from the LCSD:

Loveland High School students, grades 9-12, will remain in hybrid learning through the rest of the semester. The current expectation is that high school students would return to five-day in-person learning beginning on January 19, at the start of the second semester. Students in PreK-8 will remain in five-day in-person learning, and there will be no changes for students in the Remote Learning Academy.

The district is offering both in-person and online learning options for the second semester. If families choose the in-person option, they are selecting this with the understanding that the second semester will begin with five-day in-person learning. Loveland families must select the learning option for their students and each building will communicate with families directly. Please be on the lookout for that communication.
