As her senior year was coming to a close at Southwest Minnesota State Kaley Scearcy realized she wanted to stay in the game of softball as a coach. Just a few years later the native of Mankato, Minnesota, gets a chance to lead her own program. Scearcy was named the new head coach at Chadron State this week. She replaces Rob Stack, who retired after ten years at the helm.
“When I was a little girl it was always my dream to play and then once I finished my collegiate career I just knew that I couldn’t leave the game”, said Sceary. “That is when it became my dream to build toward hopefully becoming a head coach one day.”
Scearcy takes over after spending the past two years as an assistant and the Eagles have posted back-to-back winning seasons. They are coming off a fourth place finish in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
“You know we have made a huge presence in the conference and we have started making appearances in the regional rankings”, added Scearcy. “For us the next step is getting our name known nationally and I think that is something that can be achieved here with the group of girls we have.”
