New Coaches Hired at Washington High

Grant Young spent one year at Union as the varsity girls basketball coach. He guided the Lady Wildcats to a 16-9 record. It was announced at last night's Washington School Board meeting that Coach Young has been tabbed as the new varsity boys coach at Washington High School. In addition, the board hired Adam Meyer as the new JV boys coach. Young replaces Chip Sodemann and Meyer replaces Josh Hall.
It was revealed back in March that Sodemann was leaving Washington to take the reigns as coach of the new Wentzville-Liberty High School program.
