Topsail hires new athletic director, baseball coach


HAMPSTEAD, NC (WWAY) — The Topsail athletics department is finally able to start fresh with a new athletics director and head baseball coach after an investigation into the school that sent two administrators and one coach out the door.

Jeffrey Fipps assumes the athletic director role from Barry West who resigned over the summer.

Fipps brings nearly 30 years of teaching and coaching experience to Topsail.

Topsail grad Nick Raynor will take over as the head baseball coach after spending time as an assitant at North Brunswick and Dixon High Schools.

He replaces Aaron Rimer as head coach.
