John Olson - Varsity Head Coach
Coach Olson coached previously at Madison East, Deerfield, Kenosha, Rio, and St. Petersburg, FL. Basketball was a way of life growing up on the east side of Madison. It brought kids from diverse backgrounds together and created lifetime memories and friendships. Coaching provides me an opportunity to make those same experiences happen for today's athletes at Sun Prairie High School.
