Cheraw— Cheraw High School has a long, storied history of excellence in athletics, and veteran Athletic Director David Byrd has put together a coaching staff for the upcoming school year that will look to continue those successes.

Byrd said that he likes the staff that he will have, most of which are returning from last year.

“I am Very proud of the staff we have at Cheraw High,” Byrd says. “We are fortunate to have very dedicated coaches that that work extremely hard to compete at a high level in their respective sports, while developing our athletes for their future after high school.”

Byrd added that most of the coaches have been on the staff for a very long time; however, new to the Braves’ athletic director is Head Varsity Boys Baseball Coach Rob Mammes, who comes over to Cheraw from Carolina Forest High School.

Tracy Hatcher will be back on staff to head up the cheerleaders, Harold Palmera will coach the cross country teams, and Damian Ashe will be the golf head coach. The head coach of the varsity volleyball team will be Kate Brune.

After a very successful season last year that saw the Braves take a deep run in the playoffs, Head Coach Andy Poole returns to lead Cheraw football.

Rhonda Wallace also returns to lead the girls basketball team after leading the Lady Braves into the playoffs last season.

In the Spring, Palmera will change up his coaching duties and lead the Braves’ soccer team and Byrd will once again be the head baseball coach.

Kevin Thurman will also return as the Lady Braves’ head coach in softball after a successful campaign last Spring.

Tammy McCarn will be the girls tennis coach. Veteran coaches Ben McQueen and Lixander Henry will head up the boys and girls track teams.

 Terrance Warren will head up the Braves’ wrestling program again this Winter.
