Former AD Dodge moves to position at Liberty…
Kyle Dodge has resigned his positions as athletic director and wrestling coach at Mary Walker High School in Springdale and has been hired as the athletic director of the Liberty School District in Spangle.
“Liberty started phoning me back in May when they learned that their athletic director was resigning at the end of the school year,” said Dodge. “I accepted the job because Liberty is a strong athletic contender in the 2B ranks, while Springdale will probably be dropping to the 1B classification soon because of its steadily decreasing enrollment. And, I live in Spokane, so it is a shorter drive for me to go to Liberty than it was to drive up to Springdale.”
According to Dodge, Springdale will continue to play an independent sports schedule through the 2019-20 school year. The Chargers will play eight-man football against 1B teams and a mixed schedule against 1B and 2B teams in other sports.
