ATHENS –Athens baseball coach Jamie Hill didn’t have much to smile about in his first season as Golden Eagles head coach.

Athens suffered one of the worst seasons the school has seen in recent years with a 3-39 record to finish the year.

Due to the difficulties this season, it has been reported that Hill has decided to resign from his duties as head baseball coach after one season.

What Hill plans on doing in the future or when a replacement will be named has not been discussed as of yet.

Athens principal Chris Bolen was out of town and unavailable for comment Monday.

Hill stepping down at Athens is just one of many coaching changes that have taken place across Limestone County this summer.

Ardmore filled both of its open head coaching positions when the Tigers hired Trace Malone as football coach and Mark Thomas as softball coach earlier this summer. Malone said that Ardmore is still looking to add an additional assistant football coach.

Clements filled the coaching void that one-year head football coach Barry Daniel left by going to Cherokee when the Colts hired Forrest Williams to take the helm. Williams brings an intense personality along with a vast knowledge of the spread offense along with him. He believes this will help make the transition easier for the players.

Elkmont has only filled one of its two coaching vacancies this summer when Stace Tedford was added to the Red Devils’ staff as head boys basketball coach. Tedford replaces long-time Elkmont coach Steve Britton, who resigned to take the head basketball position at Westminster Christian Academy in Huntsville. Tedford came from American Christian in Tuscaloosa. He is a graduate of Decatur High School and the University of North Alabama, where he played basketball.

Elkmont is still looking for someone to take the head baseball position that came open after Matt Stockman resigned. No candidates have been name as of now.

East Limestone stayed in house when the hired their new boys basketball coach. After Donny Story resigned, the Indians hired Dewayne Uselton to take the helm. Uselton coached the junior varsity boys team that won the County Tournament.
