LNC basketball

Chet Korczynski has been named head basketball coach at Lake Norman Charter, where Donovan Atwell (25) is the returning leading scorer.

HUNTERSVILLE – Chet Korczynski is returning to the Lake Norman Charter boys basketball team, this time as head coach, after spending last season leading the girls team.

Korczynski achieved an 8-14 record in the 2018-19 season following the departure of the only coach in school history at that point, Bobby Williams. He was an assistant on the boys team the seven years prior.

This time, “Coach K” succeeds Aaron Reeves as boys coach, who stepped down March 12 after a 131-77 record in seven seasons in Huntersville.

Korczynski is a veteran physical education teacher and coach at LNC, also spending five seasons as head baseball coach and serving on the football staff for two seasons.

Taking Korczynski’s spot leading the girls will be Mike Porter, also previously a coach at Lake Norman Charter.

Porter served as the head junior varsity and varsity assistant with Korczynski during the 2018-19 season. Before joining LNC, Porter coached women’s basketball, football and track at East Gaston High.

He has been a high school counselor at LNC since 2017.
