Price to coach at Spruce Creek
Andy Price, former head football coach at Warner Christian Academy, is coming back to Volusia County.
Price resigned from his head coach position at Titusville High on Monday to take the same position at Spruce Creek High School. In one season, Price led a young Terriers squad to a 4-6 record.
Price led Warner’s program for 13 seasons where he went 113-45 during that span. Under Price, the Eagles had 12 playoff appearances, including 10 straight from 2001-2010 and three straight Class 1B state title games from 2008-2010.
Spruce Creek went 12-28 over the past four seasons under Bob Goebel, including a 2-8 mark in 2012.
Attempts to reach Price before the Daytona Times’ deadline on Wednesday were unsuccessful.
Middle school basketball returns
Once again, middle school basketball is here. The Volusia County school district’s middle school basketball season is set to run from March 19 through May 16.
The Campbell Spartans are the boys defending champions while the Port Orange Creekside Cougars are the girls defending champions.
Middle school basketball began back in 2005. The sport returned in 2010 following a two year absence (2008-2009).
The East Side division consists of Ormond, Holly Hill, Campbell, Hinson, Silver Sands, Creekside and New Smyrna while the West Side division includes DeLand, Deltona, Southwest, Galaxy, Heritage and Riverside.
The two division champions will meet in the championship game on May 21, which will be played at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach.
