Dr. Bergstrom, 67, died at his home in Old Hickory July 10, 2012. He had recently been diagnosed with multiple myeloma but had been responding favorably to the treatment and was expected to recover. It is likely that an embolism caused his sudden and unexpected death.
Principal Mel Brown named Jim Carter as the new baseball coach at Mt. Juliet High School Thursday, replacing Mark Purvis who resigned in mid-June.
Carter, son of former TSSAA Executive Director Ronnie Carter, has been a head baseball coach for the past 14 seasons -- most recently at Davidson Academy. He also coached at Hunters Lane and Jackson Christian -- taking all three programs to the state tournament a combined five times. His 2000 and 2008 teams were state runner-up, and he had third place finishes in 2003 and 2009.
