All coaching jobs at Warren County High School are now filled.
Jerry “Gooby” Martin was hired Tuesday to become the new Warren County High School softball coach, ending a search that started in May when 13-year-coach David Upton resigned.
In a press release sent out Tuesday, WCHS athletic director Todd Willmore spoke highly about the hiring of Martin.
“Jerry has built outstanding relationships with a number of our student-athletes, all of which love him and play hard for him,” said Willmore. “Jerry will be a great asset to our school and athletic program.”
Martin, who has previously served on the WCHS football and baseball staffs, has been the WCMS softball coach from 2009-13. He’s happy to be making the move to the highest level of softball in Warren County.
“I’m excited and looking forward to the opportunity. It’s going to be a big challenge. I know it’s a big difference going from the middle school to the high school, but I’m looking forward to the challenge,” said Martin.
More information will be in Friday’s Southern Standard.
