A new year, a new newspaper, and faces - along with those new faces are new teachers and coaches, one of whom was kind enough to answer some questions. Meet Mr. Mike Carey, the new Women’s Varsity Basketball Coach. Mr. Carey has been with us before, but now he’s returned this year to coach the Women’s Basketball team, again! It’s great to have new faces besides the freshmen. So we asked Coach Mike about some of the questions and these were his responses.
1. Have you ever taught at another High School?
Coach Mike: “I coached varsity basketball at Mercy SF from 1989-1999”
2. What Brought you to SHCP? Why?
Coach Mike: “I started coaching JV’s at SHCP in 1997. I had known Coach Harrigan since high school and was looking to get back into coaching again. Also my son had just started as a freshman that year”
3. What do you think of SHCP’s current basketball team? (The one that you are coaching...or will be coaching)
Coach Mike: “I’m really looking forward to this years team. We have a couple of returning players to go with others from the lower levels. Our Frosh won the league title last year so we have a strong nucleus.”
4. If you could change one thing about SHCP what would it be?
Coach Mike: “On campus fields for baseball,track,soccer & football.”
5. What do you do on your free time?
Coach Mike: “In my spare time I like to spend with family. Go for walks,watch sports, read.”
Welcome back to SHCP Coach Carey!
