Former Moundridge softball coach Aaron Annis lands first college head coach job.
Central Christian College Athletic Director, Twiggs Reed, is pleased to announce the hiring of two new coaches for the Central Softball and Tennis programs for the 2017-2018 season.
Central Christian College welcomes Aaron Annis of Sterling, Kansas as the new women’s softball coach. Annis is a 2013 graduate of Tabor College where he was a member of the Blue Jay football team for two seasons. Fast pitch softball has been a part of Annis’ life since the age of nine when he was introduced to the game by his father who was an accomplished high school and college softball coach. His father started a 12U boys fast pitch team where Annis starred as pitcher, winning three national championships in 2005, 2006, and 2007. After graduation from Tabor in the spring of 2013, Annis spent two years as an assistant coach at Sterling College before becoming the head coach at Moundridge High School. In his two years at Moundridge he was able to lead his team to the state tournament, where they came up short in the opening round 1-0.
Reed says of Coach Annis, “Aaron brings experience at both the collegiate level and high school level of coaching. We are thrilled to have him leading the women’s softball program and look forward to him building off of the young team that previous Coach Mark Ritchhart had been developing.”
Annis is excited to lead the Tiger softball program saying, “I’m truly blessed to be a part of the Central Christian College family. I’m excited to get the ball rolling this fall and to meet my new team and to work with Coach Baker. It’s been my dream to be a head softball coach at the college level and Central has given me that opportunity.”
