The Chillicothe Athletic Department acted quickly to fill the vacancy created by Shawn Blue’s resignation from the Girls Basketball head coaching position, hiring Patrick Beard as his replacement.
Beard served as part of the Chillicothe Boys basketball coaching staff under then head coach Gary Kellough. The 1993 Zane Trace graduate played for Coach K and then joined the CHS staff during the Cavs state title run.
Beard says it’s a challenge he’s ready to embrace “(I’m) looking forward on building what Coach Blue has done over the past four years… taking it to the next level, wanting to instill hard work, dedication and passion for the game into the young ladies.”
2013-14 will be Beard’s first year as a head coach.
That will also be the case for Chelsey Jones as the new Volleyball coach for the upcoming fall season. Jones, who was an assistant for Bret Wrightsel last season, served as the JV head coach for Shawn Blue in the basketball program. Wrightsel handed in his resignation in November following Chillicothe’s SEOAL championship season.
Jones says Wrightsel is serving as her mentor “Being around him last year, I kinda got use to his coaching style and a sense of what he’s all about… I’m excited to follow in his steps.”
Coaching teenagers is nothing new to Jones “I currently coach Spiketown Club Volleyball (17 year olds) right now and I think the ages I’ve coached in the past will help me build a strong program because I know how each level needs to be coached.”
Like Beard, Jones was a recognized Scioto Valley Conference athlete during her high school days, (as Chelsey Eblin) at Huntington.
Chillicothe High School is seeking a Head Coach for the Girl’s Volleyball program.
Bret Wrightsel stepped down from the post at the end of the Lady Cavs' tournament run last fall.
In release from CHS Athletic Director William Brown:
The coach should have prior successful coaching experience, CPR, first aid training, and pupil activity permit. The Head Coach’s general duties include, but are not limited to, the coordination of all athletic activities as they relate to their sport. They shall supervise the action of all coaches, players, and managers involved in the program.
In discharging their duties, coaches should always conduct themselves in an exemplary manner.
All interested candidates should email letter of interest, current resume with win loss record, at least 3 references to CHSCoachSearch@gmail.com or mail to 421 Yoctangee Pkwy, Chillicothe 45601. Application deadline is Friday Mar. 22 with review to start immediately.
Mindy Taylor, spokesperson for the Cavalier Club, says the club has received donations totaling $800,000 plus additional resources to get renovation underway as early as late spring.
"It was a great gift, you can't turn that kind of money away..." said Taylor. A half-million dollars came from 1974 CHS graduate Tim Harris, owner of Harris & Ford LLC in Indianapolis. "He saw a great need for it. Anyone who's benn to the Herrnstein (Field) and Bobo Track knows that it's in dire straights of renovations."
There's been no significant renovations to the grandstand since the 1930s. The press box was added in the 1970s and in 1994 the track was replaced and chain link fencing was upgraded. Last summer, through a grant from the David Mead Massie Fund, the visitor's side bleachers were replaced atop a poured cement foundation.
Taylor says several of phases are planned, with the first being artificial turf (similar to what's being used at VA Memorial Stadium) replacing the Herrnstein natural turf and the track. Taylor says "It would be a year 'round facility." The turf being considered would have an 8-10 year life span. The plus with turf is low maintenance... no mowing, no watering or painting lines and a surface durable for football, soccer, lacrosse. As a certified athletic trainer, Taylor knows the value of such a surface even for cheerleaders and marching band members.
The second phase would be the home side bleachers and phase three the concession stands and bathrooms.
For the first time in eight years, Chillicothe City Schools will be going to the voters for a levy approval. The Cavalier Club is adamant about making the public aware these are two separate issues and the stadium facility renovations would be made with donated monies, not tax payer dollars.
"It completely private fund. So, there'll be no tax payer money, no school fund... I want the administratiors and the board of education not to have to worry about what's going on at Herrnstein and Bobo." Taylor says the club wants administrators to concern themselves with the levy, academics and the system's teachers. "Let the Cavalier Club take this (concern) one."
The Club is accepting additional donations. Interested parties should contact Taylor at 740-637-7350 or email her at email@example.com.
Friday, Chillicothe Superintendent Jon Saxton and fundraiser Matt Hughes will visit Dan & Mike in the Morning on WBEX for more details.
Chillicothe Volleyball Coach Bret Wrightsel has announced his resignation following a championship season. The Cavs won their first SEOAL title and advanced to the district tournament.

The ride for Bret Wrightsel's Cavalier Volleyball team came to an end Thursday in Sunbury.
The Cavs (19-6) fell to Gahanna Lincoln in straight sets, 25-21, 25-12, 25-14. It was the first time the Lady Cavs had been beaten in three sets by an opponent all season.
Some early errors in the first set didn't allow the Cavs to counter Gahanna. "I kinda killed our momentum right there, at this level you've got to play clean."
Despite the loss Coach Wrightsel was proud of what his team had accomplished this season. "I'm really happy for these kids, to have had the year they had."
Wrightsel adds, "We've won three sectionals in five yedars, made three District appearances, the program's healthy."
Gahanna faces Grove City for the District title Saturday night. The Greyhounds dropped Westerville Central in 5 sets.
