Kerrell takes over Baker girls basketball team

BAKER — After Brian Wagner stepped down as Baker School’s girls basketball coach earlier this year, principal Tom Shipp and athletic director Matt Brunson didn't have to go far to find a new coach.

The coach, in fact, was already in the building.

James Kerrell was tapped to replace Wagner last month and has already started working with his new team.

Dream come true

Kerrell — who brings a wealth of coaching experience in multiple sports — has assisted with the Gator volleyball team, and coached the boys soccer team and the middle school golf team since he arrived at Baker from Davidson Middle School two years ago.

While at Davidson, he coached both the boys and girls basketball teams.

Getting his first high school basketball job is a dream come true for Kerrell.
