Sherando High School has named Brooklyn Wilson its new girls’ varsity basketball coach. Wilson, who is a 2010 Sherando High School graduate, succeeds Mike Marsh who has resigned after leading the Lady Warriors for the past six seasons.

During her four years as a student at Sherando, Wilson was a member of the school’s varsity girls’ basketball team. After graduating from Sherando in 2010, she continued her academic and basketball career at Lancaster Bible College where she helped lead the Chargers to an appearance in the 2013 NCAA Division III Women’s Basketball Tournament. Upon graduating from Lancaster Bible College, Wilson returned to her hometown of Stephens City and has been teaching health and physical education at Sherando High School for the past four years. In addition, Wilson has served as the coach of Sherando’s junior varsity girls’ basketball team the past three seasons.

Wilson says, “It’s humbling to have the opportunity to serve as the coach of the team on which I played as a high school student. I’m very familiar with our returning players as well as those who have played at the junior varsity level the past few years and believe the relationships I’ve formed with our players will be helpful as I transition from leading the JV team to leading the varsity squad. I’m looking forward to using my experiences as both a player and coach to help elevate Sherando’s girls’ basketball program in the years to come.”

Sherando High School Coordinator of Student Activities Jason Barbe says, “It’s inspiring to see a former Sherando High School student-athlete return to their alma mater and be successful as both a teacher and coach. Coach Wilson’s experience as both a student-athlete and coach will serve her well as she assumes her new role as the leader of our girls’ basketball program.”
