Broughton Adds Four Coaches

Broughton High will have four new head coaches as fall sports practice begins during the next few days.  Jim Frey (volleyball), Laura Davidson (girls tennis), Steve Smith (girls golf) and Nick Wheeler (boys soccer) are the new coaches.

"We have a lot more changes than usual," said Jack Spain, Broughton's athletic director. "We're very fortunate to put together this group of coaches. I feel like we hit the jackpot.
"Our players and our parents are going to be very pleased."  Frey, Davidson and Smith have long ties with the Broughton athletics program. Wheeler has been an assistant boys soccer coach at Leesville Road.

Frey has extensive club volleyball experience and was a volleyball coach at Raleigh Magellan Charter.
Davidson is a longtime tennis player and has been involved in the Broughton tennis program.
Smith has worked with the Broughton boys golf team the past two years. He has been involved with junior golf for 25 years and has been officiating golf for several years.

Community Service at International Soccer Match

Broughton Sports Fans!

We need Broughton athletes, students and parents to help work concessions at the men's soccer match between Italian soccer power Juventus and the Mexican club C.D. Guadalajara on Thursday July 28 at Carter Finley Stadium. This works provides funding for Broughton Athletics.

Students will be able to get plenty of community service hours, but we need parents too! We'll need volunteers at the stadium by 5:30 PM. The more people we have, the more opportunity to watch the game!
Please email me if you can commit!
