Carpino tabbed to coach Lady Hornet volleyball
Chastan Carpino was recently named to take over the volleyball program for the Harrisburg School District. Carpino will replace the late Jennifer Jordan, who lost her life in a vehicle accident earlier this year. Carpino has mixed emotions about the new challenge.
"It's bittersweet," was the new coach's reaction when asked about the change. "Jennifer and I were good friends off the field and off the court. With her (Jordan) being an assistant on the softball team, I was already familiar with most of the girls who will play, and that will make the transition a little easier I think" Carpino said.
This will be Carpino's first time to coach volleyball. "I played in high school but it's been awhile, I'll have to familiarize myself with volleyball lingo again," Carpino said.
Carpino said the girls have been practicing hard and they are looking forward to the season that starts in August.
