The Vilonia School District golf program will tee up soon with 30-year-old coach Justin Moore.

Moore has spent time recently getting to know the players. This year’s team, Moore said, will be young.

“Most of the team, last year was seniors,” Moore said. However, he anticipates the young team will have momentum.

“What I have seen so far is that it is a young team eager for experience.”

Moore is no stranger to the Vilonia School District. He attended the school district from Kindergarten through 6th grade. His dad took a job out of the area, and the family moved away but he has fond memories and looks forward to a long relationship.

He graduated from Bald Knob High School. Moore has coached in Beebe for three years and Bald Knob for the past three years. At Bald Knob he has served as 7-12th-grade coach in basketball, baseball and golf.

His family includes his wife, Kaci, and his two sons, Jaxon and Maddox.

In addition to teaching, Moore will also serve as the assistant baseball coach at Vilonia Junior High.
