Trigg County has named Ashley Campbell as their new girls' softball coach. The announcement came at the school on Tuesday.
Campbell teaches in the high school and graduated from Murray State in the spring. She was a three-year starter for the Elmore County, Alabama High School team, a team captain, and was named Academic All-State.
Campbell will have her work cut out for her. She takes over a Trigg County softball program that has won just 73 games in the 17 seasons since softball made the switch from slow pitch to fast pitch. She replaces Lacey Briscoe, who resigned in the spring after an 8-45 record in three seasons. Trigg County was 4-20 this year.
The Lady Wildcats have never advanced to the Second Region Tournament in fast pitch and haven't won a district tournament game since 2005. Their only winning fast pitch season came in 2004.
Campbell said she plans on starting preseason condition after fall break.
