Girls Basketball Head Coach- Cassie Damyanovich
Coach Damyanovich took over as the head girls basketball coach for the 2017-2018 season. Damyanovich is an Arizona native. She played at Highland High School under Coach Webster and graduated in 2011. After high school she received a scholarship to play at California State University of San Marcos. After graduating in 2015, she returned to Arizona and her alma mater to coach the freshman and JV teams at Highland. She has also coached two club teams at Reach Basketball Academy and participates in coach training there as well.
“I love the game of basketball because it’s more than a sport, but a passion of mine. To play the game is unlike anything else, but to teach other women to play the game and find success in it is extremely powerful. Basketball, and other sports, do more than declare a person an athlete, but it teaches them how to hold themselves accountable. It teaches people that they are more powerful and stronger than they ever imagined, and that’s what I hope to teach my girls at Queen Creek. I want to allow them to empower themselves. My job is just to point them in the right direction to succeed, and not accept anything less.”

Boys Basketball Head Coach- Daniel Bobik
Coach Bobik is in his first year as the QCHS boys basketball head coach. This is his first experience coaching at the high school varsity level, but his career as a basketball player more than makes up for his lack of coaching experience. Bobik started his college career at Brigham Young University in 2001-02 before transferring to Oklahoma State in 2003. He had to sit out his first season on the transfer rule, but in 2004 and 2005 helped lead the Cowboys to back-to-back Big 12 Tournament Championships, a Big 12 regular-season Championship and a Final Four and Sweet Sixteen appearance. He went on to play overseas, before coming home to focus on his family.
Bobik grew up in a basketball family with a 6’8″ father who played for Creighton and was an eventual draft pick of the Phoenix Suns. Daniel and his wife, Natalie, have four children.

Boys Soccer Head Coach- Mauricio Ramirez
Not only is Coach Ramirez the first coach to lead the boys soccer team to its first undefeated season and state championship in QC history, but he also has quite the history with Queen Creek High School.
This year is his 19th year coaching here at Queen Creek. His record through the 2017-2018 season is 242-74-8. Last year, he led the team to another undefeated regular season. As the no. 1 seed in the state tournament, his team had a heartbreaking loss in the quarterfinals. He says, “the reason I enjoy doing this year after year is that I enjoy working and watching our athletes grow as players and individuals. I also enjoy building friendships with players that need that extra push in believing in them just like my teachers and coaches did with me.” Coach Ramirez was a graduate of Queen Creek High School in 1992. “Working and giving back to my Queen Creek community and schools gives me great pride as a teacher, coach and former student.”
Coach Ramirez was inducted into the Queen Creek High School Athletic Hall of Fame in 2016.
