Ramblin’ Reck: Dave Mahurin heading to Edgewood

TERRE HAUTE — Dave Mahurin will be leaving Rockville to assume new duties in July.

His appointment as administrative assistant (assistant principal) and boys basketball coach at Edgewood High School was approved by the Richland-Bean Blossom school board Monday night. He will begin those duties July 1.

Mahurin has been at Rockville 12 years and coached boys basketball teams 10 of those years. He said he came to Rockville as assistant principal and served in that capacity for three years before being named principal.

His basketball teams posted superb records, winning conference and tournament titles including the Wabash Valley Classic title in 2012 and posting winning postseason marks, reaching the Class A state finals in 2012.

Mahurin was at South Vermillion for seven years before going to Rockville, serving as athletic director for five years and as coach. He was teacher and coach at Adams Central for six years.

Mahurin played basketball at Terre Haute South and Marian College and got started in coaching as an assistant at Martinsville for two years.

“I am excited and thrilled to become part of the Edgewood school community,” said Mahurin.

At Greencastle, Ryan Spoonmore has been named football coach and Angela Weeks the girls soccer coach.

Wins and more wins — Greencastle and Sullivan have two of the best boys high school golf teams in the Wabash Valley.

Both are continuing to have success on the links.

Sullivan, ranked 19th in the poll last week, won its second straight Western Indiana Conference title. The Golden Arrows took an unbeaten mark in nine-hole matches into their match with Terre Haute North on Tuesday.

Greencastle recently won its fourth straight Putnam County title and seventh straight West Central Conference championship.

Both teams should vie for regional honors at Country Oaks.
