Chesterfield— The Chesterfield High Golden Rams’ Athletic Department, under the direction of Athletic Director Craig Hatcher, is already prepping for the 2018-19 school year with a mix of veteran coaches and some new additions.

Hatcher said that he is pleased with the staff he has going into the school year.

“They are a great, hardworking staff,” he says.

The first noticeable change for Chesterfield High will come in varsity football, where Michael Mains is taking over to run a program that has seen a lot of successes.

Mains previously served as the Golden Rams’ offensive coordinator. He replaces Chris Arnoult, who moved on to Mid Carolina High School.

Mains also teaches math at Chesterfield High and has been coaching at the Pee Dee area school for five years, four as the offensive coordinator.

He also has coached at Irmo and at Stratford High.

““Our goals on the football field are to win games,” says Mains. “Our first goal is to win the first game of the year. We then have big games with Cheraw and Anson after that. We currently hold the trophy for both of those games and it’s our goal to keep them.”

Nick Dixon, who will be an assistant for the varsity football team, will also lead the junior varsity football team, as well as being the head coach for the junior varsity boys basketball team and the junior varsity baseball team.

Nick Jolly comes on board as the new varsity girls basketball coach.

Another new coach – but hardly new to the program – is Christian Stokes as the head softball coach. Stokes was an all-state player for the Golden Rams before moving on to play at the University of Kentucky.

Ernest Davis returns as the boys varsity basketball coach and Steven Sellers will continue as the head coach of the varsity baseball team.

Jeff Bland and Lisa Hardwick will serve as the head coaches of the boys and girls cross country teams while Lawrence Hammonds will head up the boys and girls golf program.

 Boys and Girls track will be led by David McCarthy and Melanie Brock. Amber Ange will coach volleyball and Bland will also serve as the head coach for the wrestling team.
