Greg Nichols promoted to head basketball coach

By Richard White

The Greenwood School Board approved the promotion of Greg Nichols to senior high head coach of boys’ basketball. Nichols replaces Brian Martin, who earlier resigned the position to become Head Coach at Greene County Tech in Paragould. For the past two years Nichols has served as Martin’s assistant coach.

Elkins wins high jump at Meet of Champs

By Richard White

But just for good measure, she added a first-place showing in the high jump at the state’s Meet of Champs, held recently in Russellville. Elkins earned the right to compete at the Meet of Champs by winning her event in the 6A state meet at Lake Hamilton a week earlier with a leap of 5’3”. Click Here For More

Lady Bulldogs ride Taylor’s arm, Parker’s bat to 6A title

By Richard White

In baseball and softball parlance, the battery consists of the pitcher and catcher. And while the other seven players and the defense were important last Saturday, the Greenwood Lady Bulldogs mostly relied on the duo of starting pitcher Victoria Taylor and catcher Syndey Parker in capturing their first 6A fast-pitch state softball championship. Greenwood defeated Sheridan, 3-0. Click Here For More

New GHS basketball coach brings vast experience

This past May the Greenwood School Board approved the promotion of Greg Nichols to head coach of the Bulldogs. For the past three years Nichols has served as assistant coach to Brian Martin, who resigned in the spring to take the head job at Greene County Tech in Paragould. But while Nichols is charged with rebuilding the boys' basketball program at Greenwood, he is certainly no novice.

In fact, the first time the Bulldogs take the floor during the regular season this coming November, the "slightly" experienced Nichols will be making his 1,000th appearance on the bench as a head coach. Nichols already has 34 years under his belt with an overall record of 626-373. That's an outstanding winning percentage of 63%...continued
