Orangeburg Prep coaching staff nearly complete

Staff Reports

OrangeburgOrangeburg Prep has seen plenty of success throughout the athletic landscape over the last several years, but they’re hoping the 2018-19 season will bring even more.

The Indians had finalized most of its coaching staffs through the middle of July, but still had a couple of openings to fill. 

Longtime athletic director Jan Stoudenmire will once again oversee that unit of OPS as well as continue to coach the varsity cross-country, girls’ basketball and softball teams.

Andy Palmer has been trying to rebuild the Indians football team and will try to get the team into the playoffs during his third season at the helm. 

He will be assisted this fall by Al Hay, Justin Gilliam, Gregg Fanning, Brooks Smith, Sam Lambrecht, Randy Zeigler and Chris Mack

Hay will also lead the B-team and be joined by assistants Ben Davis and John Strickland.

Jordan Collins heads up the cheerleading squad during football season while Ann Edwards is in charge during basketball season. 

Alex Reid and Claire Wannamaker handle the jayvee and B-teams, respectively.

In the winter, Justin Ray will return as the wrestling coach while John O’Cain takes over the boys’ basketball team.

O’Cain’s junior varsity and B-team coaches have yet to be determined. 

Angie Patterson leads the B-team girls’ basketball and volleyball groups.  The varsity volleyball team is still in search of a head coach.

Smith has the responsibility of the bowling and track teams, and Tim Schriver assists him with the pole vault. 

Other head coaches at Orangeburg Prep include Ann Edwards (jayvee girls’ tennis), Dena Gleaton (sporting clays), Tony Gray (bass anglers), Matt Hiatt (co-ed soccer), Hay (golf), Palmer (varsity/jayvee baseball) and Chris Davis (B-team baseball).
