Patrick Henry Community College has hired two new head coaches. Chris Mayshack will be the school’s new men’s basketball coach, and Lucas Almeida will be the new women’s soccer coach.

Before joining the Patriots, Mayshack was an assistant coach at Prince George Community College. While he was an assistant coach, his team won the Region 20 Championship and made it to the district championship game. They finished the season 22-6, and were ranked sixth in the nation.

In 2017, Almeida became the head coach of PHCC’s men’s soccer team. After a brief departure to serve as the head coach of Carlisle’s Boys’ Soccer team, Almeida has returned to the Patriots.
