Spurlock Named New Girls Varsity Basketball Coach
Welcome, Coach Spurlock!
After a long search we are pleased to announce Coach John Spurlock as the next Girls Varsity Basketball coach at Westminster. Coach Spurlock has come full circle in his coaching career. He began coaching middle school girls when his oldest daughter was in middle school. Since then, he has coached Varsity boys. He coached at Curtis Baptist School from 2009 until 2016. During this time, his team won 5 Region Championships, four out of six Final Four appearances and 2 State Championships. He was named GISA Coach of the Year two times and Region Coach of the Year four times. Coach Spurlock then went to Wardlaw Academy where his Varsity boys teams won three of five Region Championships and he was named Region Coach of the Year three times. He was also named the Augusta Chronicle Independent Boys Coach of the Year five times during his career.
We are excited to welcome him to the Westminster family and proud that Coach Spurlock’s biggest success is not just all of the wins and championships, but the godly example he portrays as he coaches. He loves basketball, but his biggest love is his family. He is married to Kim and the father of 11 children, and Poppa to 14 amazing grandchildren.
We also have two assistant coaches already in the hiring process but they will be announced sometime in the future. Coach Spurlock will be communicating soon to all girls high school players about a time to meet and have some gym time this summer, but feel free to reach out to him as well at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
