Holy Name High School is pleased to announce that Kasey Suzanne Reis has been named the head varsity softball coach. She takes over for Jeanette Howard, who was named an assistant softball coach at Baldwin Wallace University this summer.
Reis has previously coached at Strongsville High School and Magnificat High School. She was a national pro fastpitch softball player for the Akron Racers, and played collegiately at the University of Alabama and at Mississippi State University. Reis received many accolades while in college, including being named a three-time All-American, two-time Scholastic All-American and SEC Player of the Week.
“Softball has been a large part of my life, and I am looking forward to starting this new chapter at Holy Name,” said Reis. “The program has accomplished a lot the past few years, and my goal is to both continue and further this success on the softball diamond.”
In 1997, Reis was named the state of Georgia Player of the Year. She was also a three-time high school All-American and a three-time All-State selection, while being named Sport South Player of the Year and Nike Player of the Year.
Additionally, Reis was a three-time invitee to the Top 60 USA/ASA Olympic/National Team Training Camp, an invitee to the Top 60 USA/ASA Junior Olympic Tryout Camp in San Diego and the youngest athlete invited to the 1996 Olympic Team Tryouts.
Reis is married to Michael Don Reis, and has four children. Along with being committed to developing softball players, she has worked on several missions with Athletes in Action.
