Latta— The Latta High School Vikings Athletic Program can probably best be described with one word – winning. The Pee Dee Area school has a winning tradition across multiple sports, and the athletic coaching staff will be looking to do the same again next year.

You don’t have to look far in the past to see a symbol of those successes when the Vikings won the Class AA baseball title over Chesnee under Head Coach Donald Cribb.

The Lady Vikings softball team, coached by Stephanie Ard, also saw tremendous success in the Spring, winning the District VI title before falling the lower state quarterfinals.

Both teams will be going into the 2019 season hoping to repeat those successes.

Curtis Jackson returns to coach both the boys track and girls track team in the Spring.

Brandon Iseman will return again this Fall to lead the Vikings varsity football program. Last season Latta advanced into the second round of the Class AA playoffs.

Kim Bean will coach the Latta Lady Vikings volleyball team in the Fall, a team that also advanced into the second round of the Class AA playoffs in 2017.

In the Winter, Curtis Jackson returns to lead the varsity girls basketball team. Last season, the Lady Vikings were an overtime loss from making it to the third round of the state playoffs. Jackson will be looking to help his Latta team get deeper in the playoffs for 2018-19.

Chris German will return as the boys varsity basketball head coach, leading program will a very strong winning tradition. German will be working to lead the Latta boys team back into the playoffs in 2019.

Overseeing the Latta Athletic Program is Athletic Director Aaron Miles. The assistant athletic director is Bean.

 Miles also serves as the Latta High golf team coach in the Spring.
