Varsity Boys Basketball

Holt is taking on the responsibility after Matt Wallace, current Head Coach stepped down this spring. Wallace, has seen increased responsibilities with his new title as Director of Finance & Operations. Wallace will continue with the program, but will be the Assistant Coach. After years of coaching together, Holt & Wallace remain a strong team. Holt came to CA last year after seeing great success at Stewart County High School as their Head Varsity Coach. Holt was there for 4 years. He also coached Intermediate Basketball at CA for 3 years. Wallace said, “There is no one I would rather have to lead this team, and help achieve our goals of winning district, region, and state championships, than Coach Holt.  Chuck Holt is a great head coach & I look forward to coaching with him for many years to come.”
