After 18 seasons coaching on various levels and various schools, including both Williamstown and Grant County high schools, Marlin Gregg is officially hanging up his cleats, resigning at the end of the Grant County High School softball season.
Gregg, who is also the assistant principal at Grant County High School, plans to pursue other opportunities. He was named the softball coach following the resignation of Ott Reed last season.
Heading into this week's 32nd District Softball Tournament, the Lady Braves have endured a "roller-coaster season," according to Gregg, as Grant County is 10-18 overall.
"It was a rebuilding year, a year of trials with new fielders, pitchers and catchers. However, I think when it's all said and done, this will be the first year of many successful years for the program. This year made every member realize how important it was to have leadership," Gregg said.
Despite the losses, Gregg said there were several satisfying moments to the season.
"The most satisfying moment was seeing the younger players step up and seeing the kids having to work for a position," Gregg said.
In his 18 years, Gregg spent four years (2000-04) as both the baseball and boys' basketball coach at Williamstown and in 2004, he was both the softball and baseball coach. In 2005, Gregg was named the baseball coach at Grant County High School, serving for one season.
"This will be it in terms of coaching," Gregg said.
