Parents: Topsail Baseball coach asked not to return to team

HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — Parents of the Topsail Baseball team are still looking for answers as an investigation into the school’s administration continues in Hampstead.

Parents spoke once again to the Pender County School Board asking for an update on the status of an investigation into the handling of an ineligible player on the Topsail Baseball team but the board did not provide an update.

Since the parents spoke, Barry West resigned as Athletic Director of the school.

WWAY did learn Tuesday from parents in attendance that Coach Aaron Rimer has been asked to not return to the team when school starts later this year.

Last week, Pender County Schools told us the investigation is ongoing and in its final stages and they will release information when all steps have been completed.
