James Hood named new Lakeside High boys’ basketball coach

SAYBROOK TOWNSHIP — The Ashtabula Area City School Board unanimously approved hiring James Hood to be the head boys’ basketball coach.

A good crowd turned out to hear who would get the job and Hood seemed to please the group.

A former Ashtabula Panther, Hood was a basketball stand-out from the time he played junior high basketball at West Junior High. He was inducted into the 2007 Hall of Fame class for the Ashtabula County Basketball Foundation. He’s also the varsity boys’ golf coach.

To coach varsity basketball at Lakeside, Hood’s supplemental contract will amount to $6,017, according to school records.

The school board also hired:

n John Anservitz to fill the head baseball coach position, paying him $3,911 for the job. Anservitz teaches business at LHS.

n William Isco to be the assistant boys’ basketball coach (junior varsity) for $3,761.

n Maureen Surbella to fill the head  swimming coach position for $3,008;

n Ryan McEndree to be the eighth-grade assistant football coach with a $3,309 supplemental contract, and

n Sandra Zeman will be the assistant cross country (junior high girls and boys) for $2,106.

During the public comment portion of the meeting, a parent of a LHS sophomore said if the school board hires more quality coaches like Frank Hall (football) and Jim Brady (wrestling) they would get more support from the community.
