• The girls’ and boys’ tennis coach will be Adam Moneypenny, a former Southern Alamance athlete. He played college tennis for Chowan. After that, he spent nine years on the Chowan coaching staff for men’s and women’s tennis, including three years ending in 2021 as head coach of those teams.

• Matt LaFuria is the cross country coach.

• Richie Burke will coach the girls’ and boys’ golf teams. He’s a 1987 Southern Alamance graduate and now a self-employed stock trader.

Burke’s golf past includes three seasons on the college team at Elon, where he was cut as a freshman before taking a roster spot under longtime coach Bill Morningstar.

“The game was very, very, very good to me,” Burke, 54, said of golf. “Opened a lot of doors for me.”

Burke said he played extensively at now-defunct Shamrock Golf Club as a youth. He’s a former member at Mill Creek Golf Club, but he said most of his golf now comes in fundraiser events.
