A coach with a wealth of knowledge in track and field will lead the Carrollton High School girls track program next season following Coach Wymon Kelley’s decision to step down to pursue other coaching endeavors within the district.

Spencer Campbell, a native of Carrollton, graduated from CHS in 2011. During that time, he competed for four years on the Trojans' cross-country and track teams, contributing to one region cross-country championship, four region track titles, and the 2011 state track championship, competing in the 800m event. He went on to earn his bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of West Georgia. With nearly a decade of teaching and coaching experience, Campbell brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the role.

He began his career at Alexander High School, coaching volleyball and girls track for three years. During his tenure, he played a pivotal role in guiding the Lady Cougars to the 2018 GHSA Track & Field Championship. In 2020, he moved to Heard County, continuing his coaching journey before returning to CHS to start the 2023-24 school year.

Since his return to his alma mater, Campbell has contributed significantly to the success of the Trojan athletic programs. He helped coach the 2023 region champion volleyball team and the 2024 GHSA State Track & Field Boys Championship team.

“We are thrilled to have Spencer Campbell join us as the new head coach of the CHS girls track program,” said Paul Fitz-Simons, CHS Athletic Director. “Coach Campbell has spent the past year assisting our coaching staff and has shown great dedication and skill.” Fitz-Simons added, “His success in other districts and commitment to our student-athletes make him the perfect fit. He is a true Trojan, and I look forward to his positive impact on the program.”

In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Campbell will continue to teach mathematics at CHS. He resides in Carrollton with his wife, Leah, and their two daughters, Ella, 4, and Amelia, 1.

"I am excited to take on the role of head coach for the girls track program," said Campbell. "I look forward to working with our talented student-athletes and building on the strong foundation that has been established. It's an honor to be part of the Trojan family, and I am excited for what the future holds for our team."
