He was 4-6 in his last season in El Reno in 2010 before accepting the head coaching position at Chickasha. He currently is in his second stint with the Fightin’ Chicks.

The girls will go with a lineup of Alexis Blasi (2-6), No. 1 singles; Gabrielle Dick (8-0), No. 2 singles; Kathryn Dillingham and Alex Dick (7-1), No. 1 doubles; and Madison Blevins and Savannah Blasi (7-1), No. 2 doubles.
