Mainland Regional High School has hired new head coaches for both the boys and girls basketball teams.

Dan Williams will take over the boys team for Tom McKeever, who was 16-55 in three seasons. Scott Betson will coach the girls, replacing Sue Repetti, who compiled a 58-62 record in five seasons.

Both Williams and Betson were assistants for Repetti.

"I’m excited because I think there’s an energy and a vision of connection the three towns that feed into Mainland (Linwood, Northfield and Somers Point)," Mainland athletic director Mike Gatley said Tuesday. "To me, the key is our feeder programs and getting our kids excited to play basketball."
