ELDER PIC

Lamont Elder was named Lewisville’s new head basketball coach last Thursday.

The head boys basketball coaching position at Lewisville is a new job for Lamont Elder, but it is also a homecoming.

Last week, Elder was introduced as the new head man at Lewisville, succeeding Mike McCray, who left to take the same job at Northwestern. Elder is very familiar with Lewisville, though, having been an assistant football and JV basketball head coach previously at the school and the head track coach. His first tenure went from 1994 until 2002 and all the programs he was associated with enjoyed a great deal of success. The football team (with Bennie McMurray as head coach) won two state titles, the basketball team was consistently competitive and the boys and girls track teams had state qualifiers in the 4x100 and 4x400 every year. The success continued when he moved to Lancaster High School as an assistant football and head track coach, with the Bruins making several playoff runs on the gridiron and the girls 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams qualified for state each year.
