Benton High School announces Wayne Miller as head girls’ softball coach for the 2018-19 school year.

Miller has more than 40 years of experience in education and coaching. He began coaching softball at Benton High School as an assistant. After two years in that role, he became Bishop LeBlond’s first head softball coach where he coached for 15 years. During that time, Miller led the team to three district titles, one state runner-up finish and one MSHSAA state title.

During the past year, Miller assisted Benton as a volunteer coach for the softball program. He also has experience coaching baseball (28 years as an assistant) and girls’ basketball (5 years as head coach).

“Wayne was an excellent choice for Benton due to his knowledge of the sport, his commitment to the sport, and the fact he already knows the skill level of many of our present student athletes,” said Brett Goodwin, Benton High School.

The Board of Education approved the hire during Monday’s meeting.
