Sparrow doing well as two-sport coach

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, January 8, 2003

It probably wasn’t the perfect homecoming.

Casey Sparrow, a 1989 graduate of Franklin County, brought his Covington Holmes girls basketball team to town Saturday to face the Lady Flyers. FCHS won 51-50 on a last-second shot by DeQuala Marshall.

The Lady Bulldogs are in the midst of a rebuilding season after losing seven players, including Miss Basketball Erica Hallman and four other starters, off last year’s state semifinalist team.

Holmes may be struggling right now, but Sparrow and his family are happy to be at the school.

“We really like it there,” he said after Saturday’s game. “We have a great staff, good support from the administration, and it’s a nice city. You’re right up there in Cincinnati.”

Sparrow is in his second year as the head girls basketball coach at Holmes after spending four years as coach at Anderson County. His wife, Lisa, is the head varsity assistant coach at Holmes.
