Chet Kammerer Gets Floored
Former Westmont Basketball Coach to Be Honored This Weekend
By John Zant
Chet Kammerer, a man of considerable modesty, was floored when Westmont College wanted him to be the men’s basketball coach, and now he is being floored again. On Saturday, December 13, the playing surface at Westmont’s recently renovated Murchison Gym will be dedicated as Kammerer Court. The ceremony will take place at 7 p.m. before the Warriors play Cal State San Bernardino in a non-conference game.
Kammerer, the Miami Heat’s vice president of player personnel, coached the Warriors for 17 years, from 1975 to 1992. His teams compiled a record of 359-156 and made five trips to the NAIA National Tournament, reaching the Final Four in 1984. He was hardly dreaming of such success when he moved west with a young family after coaching for 10 years at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana.
