Softball coach takes a new position in Yoakum

VICTORIA,Texas- The West Warriors softball coach head has stepped down.

After 17 years with V.I.S.D. , West softball head coach Jody Thompson has a new role. She  accepted a position as the assistant principal in Yoakum. the deciding factor came from her wanting to be closer to home and spend more time with her children. Thompson said it was a tough decision to make and she’s going to miss everything about coaching and her team.

“Coaching is about winning at the end of the day. I try to make them good humans and out good people and at the end of the day that’s more important to me than anything else is producing a good person and helping them find themselves.”

Thompson continued to say she will cherish those bus rides on game days and playing in the cold and heat together as a team. She said she’ll be a phone call away for her girls.  Thompson added that getting the team far in playoffs was a great thing for West and the program. She’s thankful for all of the memories and now she is looking to make some new ones.
