Dorchester Academy head of school Lynne’ Reeves has announced that Sheryle Young is the St. George school’s new athletic director, as first reported by The Eagle-Record.
Coach Young replaces Chris Myers, who resigned as the school’s AD and head football coach in May to accept the head football coaching position at John Paul II Catholic School in Ridgeland.
“Sheryle has good instincts, and has a vision for our program that I am excited about,” said Mrs. Reeves. “I’m looking forward to this coming year, and am confident that she will do an excellent job.”
Coach Young joined the Raider staff in 2018, serving as assistant to the athletic director, as well as assistant volleyball coach and head J.V. boys basketball coach, posting winning records in both sports.
Prior to joining the DA staff, Young was a coach at Bowman Academy and Holly Hill Academy, and also coached the DA Lady Raider basketball team from 2006-2010.
“I am extremely excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve as the next athletic director at Dorchester Academy," Young said. "My vision is to continue our winning traditions, while promoting sportsmanship, character, and excellence in our student-athletes and our coaches.”
Coach Young is married to Skip Young and their son, Drew, is a rising eighth-grader at DA.
