Jill Angell Honored
January 18, 2013By Zach Blakemore of Centralia High School Activities
Mrs. Jill Angell, Head Softball Coach at Centralia High School, has been selected by the National Federation of State High School Associations as the 2012 Missouri State Softball Coach of the Year. This past fall Coach Angell and her Lady Panther Softball Team completed the season as Softball State Champions in Missouri Class 3. This accomplishment also completed a two year stretch which has included back-to-back State Championships for the Centralia High School Softball Team.
For her selection as the Missouri State Softball Coach of the Year, Coach Angell will become a candidate for further awards, including possible recognition as the National Softball Coach of the Year to be selected by the NFHS.
Mrs. Angell has taught Health and Physical Education at Centralia High School for 22 years and just completed her 14th season as the Head Softball Coach at Centralia High School.
Suffice it to say, we are very proud of all that Coach Angell has accomplished, and more importantly, the positive, classy manner with which she represents Centralia R-6. When you get a chance, embarrass her a little by congratulating her.
