Keyser Track Coach remains suspended

October 20th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Despite pleas from three students, the Mineral County Board of Education voted Tuesday evening to ratify the suspension of Keyser High School’s boys’ cross country coach. The Mineral Tribune reports that student athletes Connor DelSignore, Darius Redman, and Dakota Virts took turns speaking to the board Tuesday, testifying to the positive influence coach Tammy Hart-Smith has had on them and their running careers. Hart-Smith was placed on administrative leave with pay in September while an investigation is conducted into allegations that she had treated some of the cross country team members unfairly. In the meantime, girls’ cross country coach Kurtis Wildman was placed in charge of both teams. Hart-Smith’s suspension will continue through the remainder of the school year, pending the outcome of the investigation.
