Congratulations to KMHS Men’s Varsity Basketball coach Jesse Bonner for his 500th career win against Hillgrove last Friday night.   A founding staff member of Kennesaw Mountain High School back in 2000, Coach Bonner has a rich history of player development having coached more than 50 players who have participated both on the collegiate and professional levels.

Kennesaw Mountain football wants to be competitive in region play and experience playoff football for the first time.  The Mustangs hope they have found the head coach to make that happen. A former quarterback for the Mustangs in the early 2000’s, Caleb Carmean returned to his old stomping grounds last season as quarterback coach.  Carmean now takes over as the school’s fourth head coach.

Coach Carmean brings an infectious energy and enthusiasm with a great ability to connect with both students and adults along with deep-seated roots to “The Mountain.” Carmean is a graduate of KMHS (2005) and bleeds Mustang green and black. Carmean was a three year starter at quarterback for Kennesaw Mountain during the 2002-2004 campaigns. Following his playing time at KMHS,  Carmean attended Shorter University where he was a 4 year letterman while playing quarterback.  He has a Master’s Degree in Leadership. Carmean and his wife Misti have a beautiful daughter Rylan. Please welcome Coach Caleb Carmean.

KMHS Cross County is having an outstanding season! The team is paced by senior runners Elizabeth Rice and Will Bullock.  Liz and Will won their first race of the season at the Pickens Preview at Roper Park in Jasper.  The boys and girls teams both brought home 3rd place trophies that day. As the season has progressed, the Mustang team captains Elizabeth and Will, along with Trey Davis, Morris Kindler, Stevie Limon and Zoe Vaupel have provided leadership to both the varsity and junior varsity runners.  This past week the Mustangs hosted the Mustang Stampede Invitational at Allatoona Creek Park in Acworth.  Elizabeth Rice finished first in the girls varsity race while Will Bullock finished 3rd,  achieving his personal record time for a 5K of 16:07.8. Also, Morris Kindler won the JV boy’s race earning a spot for this week’s varsity race in Cartersville.

Congratulations to Girls Varsity softball coach Lisa Chapman for the team’s 400th victory during her 18-year career.

Chapman, who has led the Lady Mustangs’ program from its inception, earned the milestone win recently against one of her proteges, North Paulding coach Jennifer Maloney — a former Kennesaw Mountain and Alabama standout under her maiden name of Fenton.

Kudos to our players and coaches for this amazing accomplishment!
