A pair of Montgomery County Public Schools have named new girls’ basketball coaches for the upcoming season.
Sherwood High School has hired former Whitman assistant Tim Hobbs to be the new head coach. He replaces Chris Campbell who guided the Warriors to a 10-13 record during a one-year stint at the helm of the program.
Campbell, a longtime assistant at the high school and college level, was recently named the head coach at Quince Orchard.
Hobbs announced his promotion last week via Twitter saying: “Bittersweet day….thrilled to be new Girls Basketball Coach at Sherwood High but had to tell the Lady Vikes of Whitman I was leaving.”
Meanwhile, Springbrook High School has hired former Holy Cross head coach Russell Davis to lead the girls’ basketball program. Davis replaces Tonya Banks who stepped down earlier this year.
Davis and Holy Cross parted ways in 2010 after the University of Maryland graduate guided the Tartans to a 111-43 record during a five-year reign. He also led the Holy Cross program to the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference and City Title championships in 2007.
Davis, who also had a stint as the women’s head coach at Bowie State, takes over a Springbrook program that finished 3-20 last season.
Hobbs and Davis are among a handful of coaches leading new girls’ programs in the county. Rockville, Bullis and Holy Cross have also hired new girls’ head basketball coaches for next season.
Frank Weaver will take over the reign at Rockville while Bullis has named Hayley Hollis the new head coach and Holy Cross has hired former Good Counsel assistant Bob Cox.
