Centennial High will look to Indiana native Nicole Fougerousse to revive its softball program after the squad went 4-25-1 this past season.
The school announced on Thursday that Fougerousse was hired to take over the position vacated by Cassie Bates.
Fougerrouse most recently was an assistant coach at Tennessee State University. Before that she was head coach Bloomfield (Ind.) High, where her 2015 squad was won a sectional title after a conference championship in 2014.
She was a standout player at Shakamak (Ind.) High and Indiana State University.
“Coach Fougerousse brings the knowledge, passion, and love of the game that we know will take CHS softball to the next level,” said Centennial athletic director Tony Hill. “She stood out immediately in our coaching search due to success she has experienced as a head softball coach and her passion for developing young players within our program. We are looking forward to seeing the new face of CHS softball hit the field this spring.”
Centennial was swept in two games in the District 11-AAA tourney in 2016, falling 15-0 to Brentwood and 11-1 to Independence.
