HAMPTON-As Virginia Peninsula Community College ramps up its sports programs for the 2023-2024 academic year, it has added a new coach to its roster.

It was announced on May 17 that Alonzo Moore is the college’s new track and field/cross country coach. Cross Country will begin at VPCC this fall.

Moore was a college athlete at the University of Wisconsin and has been involved in the sport on every level. He is a graduate of Phoebus High School and has been the Phantoms’ boys track coach since March 2019. He also was an assistant track coach at Hampton University in 2021-22, helping with jumps and pole vault.

VPCC is also adding men’s soccer to its list of intercollegiate sports for the next academic year. Kevin Darcy recently was named the head soccer coach. Women’s volleyball and softball were also recently added, bringing the total of sports programs at the college to seven.

Two more sports will be added for the 2024-2025 year, though those sports have not been decided yet.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
