Madison and Melissa Guebert

Eastview

Madison Guebert’s one-mile ride home with her coach is a place where the conversation can shift from basketball to school to relationships and then back to basketball.

When she walks through the door, though, it all changes. Coach Melissa Guebert becomes mom, talk of basketball dissipates and Madison quickly becomes a typical high school junior. That barrier is intentional, and one Eastview coach Melissa Guebert protects dearly.

“My other kids, they don’t care about our basketball,’’ she said. “When I walk in that door, it is a totally different role, and it needs to be that way for Madison, too.”

When the third-year coach first took over her daughter’s Eastview Athletic Association traveling team, hard losses and minute success left little room for relational controversy as the Gueberts began to navigate the coach/daughter relationship.

Just before Madison entered high school, Melissa was offered the Eastview head coaching position, taking over for longtime coach Paul Goetz, who stayed on as an assistant to ease the transition.

“He was great with me saying, ‘You know what, Paul, there are going to be times that I’m going to need you to talk to Madison,’ ” Melissa Guebert said.

Madison’s first significant varsity playing time came only after Goetz pushed his successor into playing her. In her own humility, Madison has done everything she can to keep the spotlight on others. Recently, it’s been a task made harder as the team’s leading scorer, averaging 22 points per game, and playmaker.

The Gueberts will try to maintain a low profile and the delicate balance between the hardwood and home. With success, and the outlook of a bright future, though, they’ll be cherishing the moments no matter what the relationship.

“There’s a lot of kids that aren’t as lucky to share this experience: that she’s on the court with me, sharing in every moment of the game,” Madison Guebert said.

Chase and Tylor Coley

Minneapolis Washburn

For Chase Coley and her father Tylor, basketball is not only a common pursuit, it’s a necessity of life

Chase, the Star Tribune’s Metro Player of the Year, has been a four-year starter for her father at Minneapolis Washburn.

She averages nearly a triple-double per game (24.4 points, 18.4 rebounds, 9.4 assists), the result of a rangy, 6-3 frame and a steady diet of hoops.
