Ezell-Harding Christian School is excited to announce the hire of Cory Stanton to be the new Head Girls’ Basketball Coach. Coach Stanton has served as the Assistant Admissions Director at Ezell-Harding since January of this year and will continue serving in that role. Coach Stanton has most recently been an assistant coach with Christian Academy of Knoxville and Webb School of Knoxville, and he currently coaches with the Tennessee Tigers AAU basketball club. He played college basketball at Clemson University before transferring to the University of Tennessee. Coach Stanton was a High School McDonald’s All-American nominee at Springfield High School.
“I’m excited to have the privilege of leading the Ezell-Harding Christian School girls basketball program. I appreciate Dr. Judd, Dr. Charlton, and Mrs. Goode for entrusting me with this responsibility. We are excited about the future of the program and can’t wait to get started helping these young ladies reach the full potential that God has instilled in them. Go Eagles!” stated Coach Stanton.
Coach Stanton looks to build on the success that Coach Dan Carter had during his tenure as head girls coach. Coach Carter was a part of the EHCS girls’ basketball program for 21 years, nine of them as head coach. As head coach, he won a district and region title in 2016 and took the Lady Eagles to five sub-state appearances and two state tournaments. He also had six 20-win seasons during his tenure.
Ezell-Harding Girls’ Basketball has a wonderful tradition including a state championship in 2001.
Coach Stanton will be meeting with all girls interested in playing basketball later this week. Girls’ Basketball Camp will be from May 29th–June 1 from 9:00-12:00 for girls ages Kindergarten through 8th grade. Summer dates for high school girls will be available soon.
