Dodge City's Steiner resigns
DCHS Head Softball Coach, Heather Steiner, has resigned her coaching duties – effective at the end of the current season. Steiner has been the Head Softball coach for the past (11) years, accepting the position after previously serving as an assistant coach in the program. She was the sixth coach in program history – which began in 1993, under the leadership of Jacque Feist (now the Principal at Dodge City High School).
Coach Steiner will finish as the all-time winningest coach in DCHS Softball history with (104) wins, hopefully adding to that total as the Lady Demons head into Regional action next week – with the hopes of making the 6A State Tournament in Overland Park.
The Lady Demons won the Western Athletic Conference title in 2009 during Steiner’s tenure, and she was named the Conference Coach of the Year. The 2009 title was the first WAC title in program history. Coach Steiner will continue to teach in the English Department at Dodge City High School.
The search for a new Head Coach will begin immediately. The DCHS Athletic Department will place a priority on hiring a certified teacher who has the necessary expertise and experience to lead the Lady Red Demon softball program and continue the tradition built by Coach Steiner.
The DCHS Athletic Department appreciates the dedication to the program and the student-athletes of Dodge City High School demonstrated by Coach Steiner during her tenure as the head coach of the Lady Red Demons.
