Matt Trent replaces Crystal Rhodes as girls basketball coach at Hickory Grove

Matt Trent is the new girls basketball coach at Hickory Grove. He replaces Crystal Rhodes, who is stepping down to raise a child.

Rhodes, a former star at Charlotte Christian (when she played under her maiden name Crystal Carpenter), led the Lions to the 2009 N.C. 3A Independent Schools state title. Hickory Grove lost to Providence Day in the 2010 state finals.

Hickory Grove was 24-4 last season and all five starters signed with colleges.

Trent was a boys assistant last season at Hickory Grove. He and wife Bethany have a 19-month-old son, Jake.
