The Salem Men’s Basketball program will be entering their 100th season this winter, and they have added a new but familiar face to their coaching staff. Pete Colclasure has been the JV and assistant varsity coach under Katie Meador for the past few years. He will replace Jeff Tolliver on coach Fehrenbacher’s staff. Pete is a graduate from Salem High and was a standout basketball and baseball player.
Salem football also hired volunteer coaches Coleton Harness and Ethan Maxey, former Wildcats, coming back to help out coach Kevin Greene. Maxey was also recently hired to be the new head basketball coach at Franklin Park. Harness was the starting quarterback for Salem for 3 years and went on to play in college. He now works for his father, Justin Harness, at Modern Woodman.
