ABILENE, Texas - The high school softball season is well over, but this afternoon Cooper made some waves. The Coogs introduced Stacey Herring as their new head softball coach.
Herring comes to Cooper from Eula, where she was the head softball coach for the past 17 years.
While with the Pirates, Herring picked up 302 wins, a 1A state championship in 2006, and nine consecutive district crowns from 1998 to 2006. She also made four state tournament appearances. Three of them were with Eula, and the other one was with Wylie in 1996.
"If you show consistency and a winning tradition as a coach, you can carry it on to the next team you have," said Herring. "It makes a big difference because the kids have confidence in you, and you continue on."
"I'm really looking forward to this year," added Herring. "We have a lot of good players coming back [and we're] changing districts. We're gonna be one of five teams, and I see great things for Cooper."
