Olentangy Orange High School athletics director Buck Weaver is looking for coaches to lead the girls basketball and gymnastics programs.

Gymnastics coach Jen Hedrick was the final coach remaining from the inaugural 2008-09 school year. This winter, she coached both Orange and Olentangy Berlin, where her daughter, Elise, is a freshman.

“Our district allowed coach Hedrick to coach both schools this year as a transition year,” Weaver said. “Moving forward she was only able to continue coaching at one of the schools, and with her kids going to Berlin, it was a no-brainer for her. She is going to be tough to replace, but luckily she is leaving us in a great situation with the program she has built to be stronger than ever.”

Bob Scott spent five seasons as girls basketball coach. This season, the Pioneers finished 5-18 overall and 1-9 in the OCC-Buckeye Division.

“We decided to take the program in a new direction,” Weaver said.
