  • Central Christian College softball coach and athletic director Chad Kerr has tendered his resignation with the Tigers and will be moving east to take over the softball program at Alderson Broaddus University.
    The announcement was made Wednesday.
    “It was a tough decision to leave,” Kerr said in an email, “but I can’t pass up the opportunity for my career and my family.”
    The Battlers are a NCAA Division II located in Philippi, W.Va., in the north central part of the state. Alderson Broaddus went 22-27 this past spring, including a 12-5 mark in the Great Midwest Athletic Conference.
    Kerr was the head coach of the CCC softball program for the last three years, and also served as the athletic director.
    Over his three seasons, Kerr led to the Tigers to a 21-87 record, with steady improvement shown over the last two years.
    “I wish Central nothing but the best,” Kerr said, “and am very thankful to President [Hal] Hoxie and former AD Melvin Sanders for the opportunity they gave me.”
    Prior to CCC, Kerr coached competitive select/travel softball both at the 16U and 18U level with the D-Bat Mustang Organization.
    Kerr was an all-conference outfielder at Northeast Missouri State University, now Truman State. He is on the career and single season stolen base record lists at Truman.
    He holds a bachelor of science degree in English.
