Nature Coast hired Emily Gore as volleyball coach. Gore, who coached Central last season, was first hired for a physical education position then as the coach. She replaces Dan Murphy, who stepped aside last year to focus on his business, Murphy's Market in Spring Hill. Murphy's teams won a pair of district titles and earned three playoff berths. And Gore is one of three internal applicants for the girls basketball vacancy. Sharks athletic directorKristen Peeples said the search for a girls basketball coach is ongoing, and the position was posted externally. "She comes with experience," Peeples said of Gore. "She'll do a good job. She knows the game. We feel we'll be able to pick up where Dan Murphy left off."
