Fuquay-Varina hires Mountford as athletic director

Former Rocky Mount High School boys and girls soccer coach James Mountford has been hired as athletic director at Fuquay-Varina High School.

Mountford spent six years as head coach at RMHS and was very successful with both teams. He was 74-39-8 with the boys' team and 66-30-7 with the girls' squad. 

A 1995 graduate of Fuquay-Varina High, Mountford returned to teach and coach at his alma mater seven seasons ago. He was named the N.C. Soccer Coaches Association 4-A State Coach of the Year in 2010.

"I am truly honored and blessed to have the opportunity to lead the athletic program at Fuquay-Varina," Mountford told HighSchoolOT.com. "As a former Bengal student-athlete, I know firsthand how vital and important athletics can be in a student-athlete's life."

He will resign his duties as head coach of both varsity squads to concentrate on his athletic director duties.

Mountford, a Barton College graduate, is married to former Rocky Mount High athlete Emily Munden.
