Board oks fall, winter coaches

The Granville Board of Education approved coaching positions for fall and winter sports during June meetings.

Superintendent Mark Bessen said the idea was to get the word out about who would be coaching for the next season to help both players and coaches prepare for the upcoming seasons.

“This way coaches can be recruiting players and planning ahead and players know who’s going to be coaching,” he said.  

Fall 2011 appointments include Lance Jordan returning as cross country varsity head coach for a second year along with modified coach Tom Scott.

For field hockey varsity head coach Jessica Sheldon returns with assistant varsity coach Jamie Graves, Sheryl Porrier will be junior varsity coach and modified coach will be Carla Prehoda.

Boys basketball head coach Duane Dodge will return for a second year thanks to an 8-1 vote; board member Pam Tatko voted against the appointment.
