Dunlap

Post by Youngblood »

Dunlap is searching for a new boys varsity basketball coach as well. Hopefully they can get a person in there who can turn the program around.

has to be a joke

their basketball program for boys is terrible Why have Mathews when he did something wrong at Limestone to get let go

The new Baseball coach was not well-liked in Metamora and like Eddie was let go

2 coaches were let go from other schools and they hired both :shock:

girls softball is there even a team?

I hear they are good at chess, soccer, tennis, swimming and cross country

There is A LOT of politics that takes place in Dunlap regarding coaches being hired and fired. Might be the worst AD job around, although I suspect that the money is probably very good.

Coach Stone and his entire staff at Metamora resigned from coaching. That might say more about the situation at Metamora than a coach would had won several 100 games as a head coach.
Football- perennial conference contender (co-champs last year) and playoff bound most years
Girls basketball- defending conference champs
Track- perennial conference contenders (girls win it nearly every year) and always qualify individuals/relays for the state meet
Golf- girls are now defending conference champs, boys were second this year in the conference and a single stroke from qualifying for the state tournament as a team this year
Wrestling- in their second year of existence, with no feeder program, made significant strides and was a contender in the conference (after Washington, of course)
Music- two or three time defending IHSA state champs
But good job cherry picking the two programs that have struggled the most

The entire staff quitting at Metamora…everyone knew why the ENTIRE staff quit…Not really my place to talk outta school on a forum but you can read it start to unfurl in the PJ Star baseball thread. I believe I posted on that thread “Did they even talk to baseball people” referring to the hiring. It was a VERY unpopular hire with parents and fans of the Dunlap baseball program.
