    CCSMS Riptide Athletic Department Announcement

    December 8, 2022


    The Charleston Charter School for Math and Science is pleased to announce Coach Lakyn Traquair will be serving as Interim Athletic Director as of December 8, 2022. A detailed transition plan is being implemented with necessary staff support to ensure the needs of our teams, our scholar-athletes, and coaches are met as the former CCSMS Athletic Director resigned to take a position that relocates him closer to family in the midwest.

    Coach Traquair has served as our Assistant Athletic Director overseeing all middle school athletics and helping with all aspects of the athletic department for several years. The Interim Athletic Director responsibilities will not impact her teaching responsibilities and she looks forward to continuing to help her 7th grade scholars reach their academic goals for the school year. Coach Traquair has been working at CCSMS for 6 years as a teacher and coach of the CCSMS Riptide softball team.

    CCSMS will continue to provide excellent academic experiences along with an exceptional athletic department.  Please direct any questions you may have regarding the athletic department or teams to Coach Traquair, Interim Athletic Director, via email at

    If you have any questions about CCSMS please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Carmichael, CCSMS Executive Principal and CEO, at
