ABILENE, Texas -

Abilene High School assistant softball coach David McNally has been promoted to head softball coach, AHS athletic coordinator Steve Warren announced Wednesday.

“I am excited to name Coach McNally as our head softball coach,” Warren said. “His experience within our program and the district as a whole makes him a great choice for the job.”

A McMurry University graduate, McNally also has served AHS as an assistant coach in volleyball and softball and teaches Algebra.
