East Hall High named a pair of new coaches Wednesday — Mark Wade for girls soccer and Brittney Ryals in volleyball — to replace Ted Deppe, who will be on staff next year at Lanier High in Sugar Hill.
Most recently at Lumpkin County High, Wade led Gainesville High to three region titles and was twice Region Coach of the Year. He has amassed more than 100 wins over his 18 years.
Wade will also work as an assistant football coach.
Ryals is an East Hall High graduate, who has worked the past two years as assistant coach for the Lady Vikings.
