Rampart High School has named Justin Chidester as its new girls lacrosse coach. Athletic director Andy Parks made the announcement on Twitter Monday and confirmed the hire to CHSAANow.com via a press release.

Chidester is no stranger to the girls lacrosse scene as he spent time on the Air Academy staff during its state championship season in 2014.

He then took over as coach of the Kadets for the 2015 season, getting them back to the playoffs.

A current teacher at Rampart, Chidester has been the Colorado Springs area for years, including graduating from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a Bachelors of Arts in Geography and Environmental Science, with a Special Education option.

Prior to his teaching career, he served in the Navy.

Chidester takes over for David Shaver, who led the Rams to a 2-12 record in 2017.
