These girls deserve better than what the coaches are given them. Some these girls have played softball for years just to be able to play in high school. And now with the coaching staff its a waste of time. The program has went down hill fast. its time for the coaches to realize they hurting the program and need to step down. These girls deserve that.

Please explain why you feel this way. If you feel they deserve better explain what they deserve. Your comment is baseless if you don't go into detail.

CHS was once upon a time a powerhouse in IHSAA girl's softball in the '90s. Bull$hit politics, crybaby parents, & a worthless athletic director brought that to a screeching halt.

The coaches may have played the game but they sure don't know how to coach. They got 2 of the better right hand hitters batting left hand. They start a freshman pitcher the first game of the year and leave in inning after inning when she was struggling. They didn't make one trip to the mount . I can go on and on. Just go watch a game and you will understand the frustration. I have watched many of these girls for years. There is a lot of talent on this team.

There is over a quarter million girls playing varsity softball in high school.

What do you play?

How about you people that are complaining go coach? I'm sure you could solve all the issues that way. Oh but wait, you don't have the time or you are scared you couldn't do better! Unless you are ready and willing to step up then don't complain. The game of fast pitch softball is just as much playing against the game as it is your opponent and if you've never played the game don't run your mouth. You parents that have no idea about the game itself have no right to talk. Powerhouse in the 90's? Really? How many state titles? That's a powerhouse, they may have had a winning record but at no time has CHS had a "powerhouse" girls team.

Oh, I almost forgot, for all you people out there that say there is talent on this team because the girls that are on the team played on low rate "world series" teams you have another thing coming. If they didn't compete in upper level ASA tournaments, which I know they didn't, then they are basically boosting they're own egos as well as parent egos by playing in second rate tournaments in the off season. Be realistic, Connersville is not a hot bed for fast pitch softball and never has been. The youth program is weak at best. This by no means detracts from the effort these young women have put forth but someone needs to call a spade a spade and tell it like it is!

Maybe there should be an athletic director with an actual vision for the sports that the school offers.

Find a travel team if your daughter is so good and not getting to play. Might want to provide a contribution to get your child all the playing time and kiss a lot of butts

One of the worst things I see happening is the way these coaches talk to the girls. I believe they like to tear them down and belittle them every chance they get. Comments being made are totally uncalled for. Keep your heads up girls, if you would all stick together you could coach yourselves and do better than what is happening right now.
It's ok because the coaches are really looking like dumb and dumber to the people who have followed the game any at all.
Put some time in to building your team a little before the season starts and it might be more successful. oops no I forgot, you are just there to collect a paycheck!

What kind of paycheck are you talking about? This is not a sport that pays extra like football or basketball. Coaches get the minimum for these non revenue generating sports. If you have concerns about physical or verbal abuse film it and present it to the school, just like mike rice at rutgers or bob knight and reed at iu.

the problem with the coaches is they seem to of forgot what fastpitch is all about slaphitting bunting, stealing bases, put ball in play anyway you can and make defense work. they got job because they are teachers that is the way it works, only way anyone else can get it is if no teachers put in for it

FACT: teachers are pressured to coach or do extracurricular clubs even if they don't want to do it. It's part of their evaluation and administration knows who coaches or sponsors clubs and who doesn't. Most of the time, if a teacher won't take on the role of coach, there wouldn't be a team. If you're so interested, call the school and tell them you'd like to coach. Let someone know your interest instead of beating up very busy teachers for not being professional coaches when they were educated to teach not coach. Putting in that kind of extra time to coach is a big sacrifice without a big reward for the sports that aren't considered to be of major importance.
