Just weeks after being named new Siegel girls basketball coach, Shawn Middleton has now been named the new head coach for the Lady Stars' softball program.
Middleton follows Perry Lyons, who resigned to become the first ever head coach at Rocky Fork Middle School.
Middleton, who was named girls basketball coach in mid-April, previously coached for 18-years at Smyrna High School. He has experience in many sports, including being an assistant softball coach with Luke Sheppard at Smyrna when they won the state championship in 2013.
Middleton served as an assistant boys basketball coach with Dyron Birdwell and assistant football coach with former head coach Greg Wyant last season. He's resigned both of those positions to concentrate on building the girls basketball and softball programs.
