Green Hill High School, scheduled to open this fall in North Mt. Juliet, has announced the hiring of Joshua McMillan as coach of its cross country teams.
McMillan most recently worked as the head coach for the middle school and high school cross country teams and the high school track team at East Robertson.
During his time with the Indians, the cross country team had at least one athlete make state every year, and the 2017 boys team finished fourth at regionals. He also served as the cross country coach for one season at Greenbrier Middle School and sent two runners to state.
McMillan graduated with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Henderson State (Ark.) and a master’s degree in computer science and qualitative methods with a concentration in mathematics from Austin Peay.
He is slated to join the math department at Green Hill.
“I am excited about coming to Green Hill High School, and I look forward to coaching the cross country team," McMillan said in a statement.
"I have been around Wilson County Schools, and there is a lot of talent here. I cannot wait to get our season going and building up our community.”
Babington promoted to HC at Nolensville
Former Springfield girls basketball coach Todd Babington has accepted a promotion as the head boys basketball coach at Nolensville High School.
Babington resigned from his post at Springfield last November to take an assistant job under Nolensville coach John Stigall, who recently became the head girls basketball coach at Blackman High School.
Babington, a former Austin Peay basketball standout, led the Springfield girls to their first winning season in 20 years in 2018-19. The Lady Yellow Jackets finished 15-13 before losing to Clarksville Northwest in the District 10-AAA tournament.
Kelli Reed replaced Babington and went 8-20 in her first year as a head coach last season. Reed took the head girls basketball job at Hendersonville in March, leaving Springfield to find another replacement.
