The district has appointed a new athletic director.

He has 24 years’ experience in teaching, coaching, and administration and has been athletic director at Red Creek since 2021. Before that, he was the director of PE and athletics in Clyde Savannah Central Schools for six years. He also has experience as a 6–12 assistant principal in Clyde-Savannah and an administrative intern and teacher in Seneca Falls Central School District. Mr. Lang has coached soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, and bowling.


Mr. Lang is also currently president of the Wayne County Athletic Association, a member of the Section V Athletic Council, and the Section V Athletic Executive Committee.


We look forward to having him on the team!
