Clarendon Hall tabs Reitenour as new football coach

Summerton – The Clarendon Hall varsity football team scored an average of just over 40 points a game last season.

It was no surprise then that Athletic Director Ritchie Way wanted to keep that kind of offensive continuity intact heading into this year.

So when the Saints decided to go in a different direction, they turned to their offensive coordinator as Anthony Reitenour was tabbed to lead the program.

“We felt like we needed to make the change and we felt like it was the right time for him to step in (to that role),” Way said. “He’s been our basketball coach for the last two years and took over as offensive coordinator last season, and we just like it was the right time and the right move.”

Stewart Price, who has served as defensive coordinator for each of the last few seasons, returns to his position as well which gives the returning players an advantage in terms of familiarity, Way went on to say.

“Everything will be run the same,” he said. “So there won’t be any really big changes. He’s going to run basically the same type of system so the kids won’t be doing anything they’re not already used to doing.”

Reitneour’s relationship with the kids and his ability to motivate them were two other key factors in the Saints’ decision, Way said. He will also keep his position as the coach of both the boys and girls basketball teams.

Otherwise Clarendon Hall’s coaching staff returns mainly intact. Eddie Judy will coach the junior varsity football squad alongside Ray Elliott while TJ Ridgeway will head the B football team along with Ty Pritcher.

Way will continue his myriad of duties as head coach of the varsity and JV volleyball programs; the bowling team and the JV softball squad alongside Shannon Corbett.

Jeffrey Bays returns as the head softball coach while Jackie McIntosh will once again head the varsity and JV baseball programs.

Bridget Wells will coach the varsity cheerleading squad with Alison Ridgeway leading the younger group.
