Baseball and softball success usually depends on players having played for many years prior to high school. Players in the really good programs play year round and have played since they were four years old. They take special batting and pitching instruction outside the school program. They are obsessed with playing ball. If that's not happening, changing coaches won't help.

I heard today that H. Hawk is taking over the coaching duties for Softball and Volleyball at Palestine-Wheatley next season.  Can anyone verify this, or is this just a rumor?

Wouldn't be surprising at all. Had to hire her or they risk losing the Hawk sisters.

Morrilton has been open for a while. I figured it would have been filled by now.Is it just a bad place to work or just not very competitive?

Carlisle athletics is a dumpster fire.  Their softball program does have some
Good young talent though.  Their coaches turnover is ridiculous.  Looks like an admin problem...

Carlisle did just get a new athletic director. Maybe they are looking to turn things around now.

Carlisle is not a dumpster fire.  Head coach retired, DC got a job at Bald Knob (his Alma Mater), one had to part ways, and the last one had performance issues.  With that said, the softball talent looks bright at Carlisle, needing a good coach to take them to the next level.

That may be true, but the softball coaching job is tied to football coaching. So that means they will find a football coach that will be forced to coach softball at a district like Carlisle. That is the unfortunate truth for most schools in Arkansas. Going to be hard to find a good softball coach.
