Bears, Indians both hire new coaches on Monday

Two Catawba County High Schools were busy on Monday, hiring a total of three new head coaches in three different varsity sports.

St. Stephens athletic director Jim Woodruff announced on Monday that the school has hired a varsity baseball and varsity girls basketball coach.

Adam Windham takes over the Indians baseball program from Chip Watts, who stepped down to take an assistant principal position at Mill Creek Middle School.

Windham is a 2003 Fred T. Foard graduate who most recently coached at Maiden Middle School.

Betsy Reynolds will led the Lady Indians basketball program this winter.

Reynolds coached the St. Stephens junior varsity girls basketball program. She has 20 years of basketball coaching experience across three states, including eight stints as a varsity head coach.

Windham will teach business at St. Stephens, while Reynolds will continue to instruct science.

Dettman tabbed to lead Bears

Kelsey Dettman has been named the next head coach of the Bunker Hill High School volleyball program.

Dettman served as an assistant coach the past three seasons under Julie Harris, who stepped down from her post earlier this month.

“We feel confident that coach Dettman will continue to build on the success of Julie Harris,” said Bears athletic director Lee Miller.

Lindsey Robinson was also named Dettman’s assistant coach. Robinson is a former East Burke volleyball player.
