After hiring a football coach last week, West Limestone High School has announced Jordan Paul will replace Ben Campbell as the new varsity girls basketball coach.
Paul is familiar with the program.
In addition to teaching physical education, he served last season as an assistant for both the varsity boys and girls basketball teams. He also coaches the varsity boys and girls track teams.
Last week, West hired Jordan Cantrell to coach its varsity football team. Cantrell had been an assistant at West since 2007.
Ardmore golf honored
The coach and state champion for Ardmore’s first 4A golf title were honored Tuesday at the Limestone County Board of Education meeting.
Lee Hodges won the 4A individual state golf championship at Robert Trent Jones Capitol Hill golf course in Prattville. During his high school career, Hodges went undefeated in regular season match play for three consecutive years and won the Limestone County individual championship four consecutive years. He has been the 4A section champion for the past four years, sub-state champion for three years.
Hodges has qualified for four state tournaments and finished in the top six every year.
The Ardmore senior will play golf at UAB next season.
The head coach of Ardmore’s boys and girls golf teams, John South, was also recognized at the meeting. South’s teams have won 12 county championships and made nine state tournament appearances during his 11-year tenure.
