Chad Mefford, the boys golf coach at Mason County, will also coach the girls golf team. Here is the press release:
Maysville--- The Mason County Athletic Department is proud to announce the hiring of Chad Mefford as the new girls golf coach.
Coach Mefford has served as the boys golf coach since 2016 and has prior experience coaching middle school boys basketball for five seasons at Mason County from 2004-2008. Mefford is a graduate of Lewis County High School where he was a 1,000-point scorer in basketball and later went on to play baseball and basketball at Berea College from 96-98 and then basketball at Shawnee State University from 99-2001.
Prior to this time at Mason County Coach Mefford taught two years at Augusta. This year will be his 17th year in the classroom. Coach Mefford teaches fourth grade Reading and Science at MCIS.
In making the hire, Assistant Athletic Director Chris Ullery said Coach Mefford was an easy choice to take over the girls golf program.
“Chad has already done a great job leading our boys golf program. His ideas are unique and there is a lot of excitement surrounding boys golf in our community. Right now, his boys team is young, but the future is very bright. There are a lot of golfers coming up in grades 4 – 9. You can tell they have a love for the game and are constantly working on their games. We wanted to see the same thing from our girls program. We wanted the program to be built around our youth and we wanted to see the number of girls golfers grow in our area and on our girls golf team. Coach Mefford is a competitor and I love that about him. He will work to make sure both of our programs are in great shape. I love his ideas and I’m excited to see what he can do with both programs in the future. Right now, for our girls program it’s about getting them started and getting them some experience.”
