KUSA — The Grandview Wolves hired Scott Henry, the former Smoky Hill Buffaloes former head coach, to lead the baseball wolf pack. After stepping down as the head coach for the Buffaloes, Henry became an assistant coach for the Wolves last season.

According to a statement by Jamee Ulitzky on Wolves baseball, “We are happy to announce that we have hired Scott Henry as our new head baseball coach.  Scott brings with him an extensive background of coaching having been both a head coach and assistant coach.  We look forward to the future of our baseball program under his leadership.”

Coach Henry attended and played baseball at Dodge City Community College and then Eastern New Mexico University. While there he earned his undergraduate in Business Administration and Business Education and has a masters in Education Administration from the University of Phoenix.

He teaches Business at Smoky Hill High School.

Once Dean Adams, the Wolves’ head coach for 11 years, decided to retire during the 2015 season, the position opened up for Henry to possibly take over.

Adams took the team to the Class 5A Final 4 this season. While coaching the Wolves the team had won four league titles, reached the Final 8 in 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2013 and took the team to their first Final 4 appearance in 2013 and second in 2015.

The Wolves went 15-10 before losing to the Mountain Vista Golden Eagles in a Final 4 game 5-4 in eight innings. Tyler Smith, a big hitter for the Wolves will return for his senior year along with pitching tandem Nick Morris and Grant Schroeder who will also both be seniors in the 2015-16 season.
