Anthony Hayes, former head coach of the Escambia County Blue Devils is the new head coach for the varsity boys, while Buddy Powell has taken over the Lady Eagles. Dewan Salter is back as head coach for the W.S. Neal B-team Eagles.
All of WSN’s home basketball games will be played at W.S. Neal Middle School this year due to construction work at the high school.
