LAKEVILLE, IN. – LaVille Athletics takes this opportunity to take an “UP CLOSE” look at our high school assistant coaches.

We continue our assistant coach series with LaVille Softball Assistant Sky Medors.

 

Coach Medors says:

I graduated from Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala, Ohio – Go Warriors!!

Where I played Football and Baseball

I earned a Bachelors of Science in Civil Engineering

 

I am currently the Chief Design Engineer for St. Joseph County

 

This is my fifth year as assistant coach for the Lancer Softball Team.

 

Coaching is very rewarding when you are able to see the players grow and improve their skills and work together to become a team.  When you see that group of individuals coming together to work towards a common goal it is extremely rewarding. Also when players work hard and they see the results of that hard work is something that I look forward to each season.

 

I have acted and sang in several musicals for the South Bend Civic. I was in the Guys and Dolls, Les Misérables, Annie and The Music Man.

 

I tried to walk on for the Purdue University Baseball Team my freshman year in 1992.  I made the first cut from about 100 players down to 15 players.  The 15 players that made the cut were to practice for one week and then scrimmage the current scholarship roster.  During the first day of practice I dove for a ball in the outfield and broke my arm and could not continue practicing or be part of the scrimmage.  That was my first broken bone and the end of my baseball career.  They typically didn’t keep very many walk-ons so the chances were slim but you never know . . .
