The Steamboat Springs School District is planning to name the high school gymnasium after boys basketball coach Kelly Meek.
After notching career win 500 during the regular season, the longtime coach of the Sailors now will coach in a gym bearing his name.
The informal announcement will be made at about 9:45 a.m. Monday in the commons area at the high school, activities director Richard Lee said.
"An official ceremony will be held at a later date, but Coach Meek will be in attendance on Monday," Lee said.
Meek and his wife, Karen, have been visiting their daughter and son-in-law in Sicily.
This season, Meek helped guide Steamboat to a 21-3 record that included an undefeated run to the Western Slope League championship and an appearance in the Class 4A quarterfinals.
He was named WSL Coach of the Year this season, as well.
Meek just completed his 31st year as head coach of the Sailors, and this season, he won his 500th career game, a career milestone, midway through the year.
Basketball parents and anyone from the community wishing to help congratulate Meek are welcome to attend the informal ceremony, Lee said.
A date for the formal gym dedication will be set at a later time.
There are two gyms at the high school, and the other one, commonly referred to as "the old gym" is named after former Steamboat Springs wrestling coach Carl Ramunno. He coached the sport for more than 30 years, as well.
