Rick Gates hired as Girls Coordinator/Head Basketball Coach

During his career, Coach Gates has been both a Head Varsity Basketball Coach and an Assistant Varsity Basketball Coach (notably, while an assistant at Dulles they won 61 games in a span of two seasons and made it to the Class 5A State Finals). This past season Coach Gates assisted our boys varsity team to a 21-9 record and a Bi-District Championship.

“Coach Gates has a vision and plan to take our girls athletic program to new heights thru a system of hard work, consistency, encouragement of young people, great organization, and building a strong sense of family throughout the entire girls program,” said Athletic Director Kurt Jones. “We are excited about the servant leadership style he will bring to this position and look forward to great successes in our girls program.”

Coach Gates is in the process of setting up opportunities to meet with athletes and parents before the school year wraps up.
