Mark Engesser has resigned as the boys basketball coach at Colorado Springs Christian, the school announced on Friday, though he will remain as the school's girls basketball coach.

According to CSCS athletic director Jason Rollings, "The time commitment needed to coach both the boys and the girls programs became too much of a strain for him and his family."

Engesser led the boys program for seven seasons, amassing a 156-26 record, including 104-6 in conference games. He led the Lions to two state titles, six conference championships, and five district championships.

CSCS went 15-8 in 2017-18, falling to Grand Valley in the first round of the Class 3A state tournament.
