Brett Erkenbrack is in his 23rd season as head coach of the Lady Thunderbirds. With a career record of 514-199 (72.1 percent), Erkenbrack is the winningest coach in the history of Kansas junior college women's basketball, and the winningest coach in the history of the Kansas Jayhawk Community College Conference, men or women.
The 2010-2011 Lady Thunderbirds captured the Region VI Championship and finished eighth at the NJCAA Division I National Championship Tournament. Cloud's 27 wins last season marked the 14th time in Erkenbrack's career that his teams have had 25 or more victories in a season, including nine of the last 11 years.
The 2000-2001 Lady Thunderbirds won the NJCAA Division I National Championship, marking the first time a Kansas school ever won the women's championship. Following that win, Erkenbrack was named NJCAA National Coach of the Tournament.
Coach Erkenbrack's honors include being inducted into the Cloud County Community College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010, twice being named NJCAA Region VI Coach of the Year (2001, 2011), Kansas Basketball Coaches Association of Junior College Coach of the Year (2001, 2011), CONVERSE/WBCA District 5 Coach of the Year (1994), and KJCAA West Division Coach of the Year (2000).
Twenty-six of Erkenbrack's players have been named All-Region VI, including 13t first-team selections. Eight have been honored as NJCAA All-Americans. More than 40 former Lady T-Birds have gone on to play at the NCAA Division I level.
Erkenbrack and his wife Sonia have two sons, Blake, a teacher at Washington County Junior/Senior High School, and Drew, a sophomore at Cloud County Community College.
