WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Under David Rutledge the Ashley Screaming Eagles finished with an overall record of 11-16 in boys basketball, 6-6 in the Mideastern Conference in the lone season for Rutledge at Ashley.

“After careful consideration by the administration at Ashley High School, David Rutledge will not continue as head basketball coach for the 2014-2015 school year,” Ashley AD Roy Turner said. “We sincerely appreciate the hard work that Coach Rutledge put in for the student athletes of Ashley High this school year. Michael Propst, will serve as an interim coach until the position is filled. The position will be posted immediately on the NCHSAA website.”

WECT has stepped up by interviewing some of Rutledge’s supporters. Can we rely on WWAY to step up to the plate too? WWAY Please investigate some of Mr. Stroud’s questions.

I agree. My son came home so excited about how he did on the test as well. Rutledge had them so well prepared and motivated for that test. We have to question if we are not trying to keep strong teachers at Ashley High.
