Fisher named new coach at Hartley


Matt Fisher has been named the new girls basketball coach at Hartley High School.

Fisher led Dublin Scioto to a 45-23 record from 2011-13 and has 17 years of coaching experience at the prep and college levels, according to Hartley athletics director Pat Murphy.

He takes over for Mike Lanza, who coached the program the last seven seasons before stepping down in March to give more attention to the Grove City football coaching position he took Jan. 13.

“Everyone we talked to about coach Fisher mentioned the same things: passion for working with young people, tireless work ethic (and) his ability to get his players to enjoy working hard,” Murphy said. “We are excited to have coach Fisher and his family as members of the Bishop Hartley family.”

During the 2012-13 season, the Hawks won their first district championship since 2001.

They were 12-10 this season.
