ANDERSTON TOWNSHIP, Ohio — Turpin High School named Pete Hopewell as the next girls’ basketball coach, pending Forest Hills Board of Education approval.

“Turpin is very excited to have Pete take over the girls’ basketball program,” Turpin Athletic Director Eric Fry said. “I know that he will bring a passion and a knowledge of the game to our girls. He will do a fantastic job of continuing to build our program and have our athletes competing at a high level.”

Hopewell, in his 23rd year of coaching high school sports, is a former Little Miami and Turpin boys’ head basketball coach. He was the 2006-07 Fort Ancient Valley Conference coach of the year as the Spartans won their division.

A Madeira assistant boys coach this past season, Hopewell teaches Advanced Placement psychology and government at Turpin.

He’s also coached at Milford as an assistant in the boys’ program when the Eagles were FAVC champions in 2010-11 and was the wide receivers coach at Moeller on the 2012 and 2013 state championship football teams.

Hopewell has been married to his wife, Jennifer, for almost 12 years with three children Aidan (9), Peyton (7) and Ryan Nicole (4).

Hopewell takes over for Stacy Alexander, who stepped down after four seasons and a 58-34 record.
