Westside has named John Gordon as its new head boys basketball coach.
Gordon comes from Pine Hill Middle School in Hephzibah. He takes over for Marvin Fields, who’s retiring after two long stints as Patriots coach, the second beginning in 1996.
Westside remained a contender throughout a tough Region 4-AA slate this past season. The Patriots entered the playoffs as a No. 4 seed and bowed out in the first round to eventual state runner-up Swainsboro.
