After being without a head softball coach for nearly four months, Sherrard High School has a new man to run its state-tested program.

Former Alleman assistant and head JV coach Mike DeLoose was tabbed as the successor to Bob Phelps.

DeLoose, who has also coached on the ASA level with the Heartland Havoc, will take over a Sherrard squad that finished 29-7 this past spring. The Tigers picked up their third sectional championship in five seasons en route to a berth in the IHSA 2A State Tournament, where they finished fourth, earning their first state softball trophy.

Phelps was not rehired this past July despite winning 56 of 66 games, two West Central North titles and a pair of Class 2A regional crowns. Phelps has since been named Erie-Prophetstown's head softball coach.
