Christy Ferguson has been hired to take over the Danville Hawks softball program; the school announced last Thursday night. She will also serve as a co-athletic director.
Ferguson will replace Lori Bailey, who led the Lady Hawks to the 2021 area tournament championship and the 3A North Regional tournament.
“I am blessed to say I have taken a job at Danville High School,” Ferguson said. “I am now the new head softball coach and co-athletic director. Their former coach, Lori Bailey, and I have been friends since high school, and she decided to step down to be with family. I am happy to take over for her. I hope to continue the success of the program.”
Ferguson previously was the head coach at Hartselle from 2012-21. She was head coach at Falkville for two years after serving as an assistant coach at Hartselle for 10 years and UAH for one year.
Ferguson led the Lady Tigers to two state championships in 2014 and 2018.
