The South Carolina High School League has picked A.C. Flora athletic director Charlie Wentzky as the next assistant commissioner.
Wentzky will replace Bruce Hulion, who will retire in December.
Wentzky will be in charge of the administration of athletic competition, rules clinics and game officials’ assignments conducted at the state level. He will provide direction in the management of SCHSL services for its member schools.
He also will oversee sports programs to include football, wrestling, baseball and softball.
Wentzky oversaw 19 sports and 39 teams while managing a staff of 21 head coaches and 71 assistant coaches at Flora.
“Charlie will be an even bigger asset to the league in this capacity and we are looking forward to working with him,” SCHSL Commissioner Jerome Singleton said.
At Flora, he was named the 2013-14 and 2014-15 Region 4-AAA Athletic Director of the Year and, under his leadership, Flora was named The State newspaper’s High School Athletics Program of the Year the past two years.
"We consistently seek out new ideas and suggestions for improvements that will place the SCHSL at the forefront of high school athletics. I am certain Charlie is up for the challenge. He is eager, innovative and brimming with ideas that should enhance the vision for the entire league," Singleton said.
Prior to going to Flora, Wentzky was the assistant athletic director, head baseball coach and a job coach at Spring Valley High.
He played baseball while in school at the College of Charleston.
