BOX ELDER — Box Elder girls basketball coach Joel Rosette, along with stepdaughters Joelnell and Kyla Momberg, is moving to Spokane and will leave the Bears program, MTN Sports confirmed Tuesday.

Rosette and his wife, Box Elder principal Bonnie St. Goddard, are seeking other professional and personal opportunities in Spokane where their daughters plan to enroll and play basketball at Mead High School.

“It was a family decision that was tough,” Rosette told MTN Sports. “But we felt like our whole family was ready for some new experiences and different roads.”

Box Elder claimed back-to-back Class C state championships in 2018 and 2019. Joelnell Momberg, a University of Montana basketball commit, averaged nearly 20 points per game as a junior while Kyla played meaningful minutes as a freshman helping lead the Bears to state this past season.

Assistant coach Jerome Gopher is expected to take over the girls program. The news of Rosette’s departure was first reported by the Great Falls Tribune.
