When basketball season tips off next week, Newton-Conover High School enters brand new territory with two new head coaches.
Jonathan Tharpe, who coached the Lady Red Devils for three seasons, takes over the boys program from former coach Mark Carter.
â€śI think the biggest thing is we are continuing to build the program,â€ť Tharpe said. â€śThe same type of philosophies and things we did with the girls team I am trying to instill with the guys.â€ť
The Red Devils were 13-11 overall and 9-5 in conference play last year, making it to the first round of the playoffs.
