TUCKER – Tucker High will enter the 2018 season with a lot of questions and will be tasked with a steep order to rebuild their program but a new head coach entering the team should help with the transition.

Tucker High was a program that struggled in 2014 and 2015 but during the 2016 season, the Lady Tigers experienced a 12-6 season. Unfortunately, that success would not be there for the program in 2017 as a 2-9-3 record was hung on the board at the end of the year.

For 2018, Tucker High has pulled Chris Herans in as the programs new head coach. Herans says that his goal for the season is to play as a team.

“We plan on playing as a team and rebuilding the softball program from the previous loss,” Herans said. “We want the community to know more about the softball program so we can get their support.”

With a rebuild in the cards for the 2018 season, Herans says that the first step towards the future is to build a bond with the team.

“The second step being dedicating our summer to working hard,” Herans said. “And training for the upcoming season.”

First pitch for the Lady Tigers is Aug. 13 against Martin Luther King Jr. High.
