Christian County has turned to a familiar face to lead their softball team.
Jim Perrin was named the new softball coach this morning at the school, ending one search and causing another one to begin.
Perrin coached Christian County from 1984-2003, compiling a 632-147 record in 20 seasons. That included four state titles, four state runner-up finishes, and one third-place finish. During that time, Christian County also won 19 district titles and 11 regional championships. The Lady Colonels won three state titles as a slow pitch program before switching to fast pitch in 1995. Christian County won the fast pitch crown in 1996, a year after converting to fast-pitch play.
Perrin produced 32 all-state players while at Christian County, including several who went on to play at the college level, and was named Kentucky Coach of the Year four times.
He was inducted in the National Fast Pitch Coaches Association Victory Club (600 wins) in 2002.
A 1970 graduate of Austin Peay State University, Perrin coached the Lady Governors softball team for four seasons. He compiled an 85-136 record before resigning in 2008.
Perrin has served as athletic director at Trigg County since July 2008 and coached the Lady Wildcat softball team to a 4-15 record in 2009.
Now, Trigg County must replace their athletic director just days after beginning a search for a new football coach when Shannon Burcham was named the new TCHS principal. Burcham also served as the assistant athletic director, meaning the Trigg County athletic program will undergo a slight overhaul this season.
