Faith Academy names new softball coach

Faith Academy named Rico Lerma head softball coach. He spent the spring as an assistant for both the baseball and softball teams at the school.

Lerma was promoted to the top spot earlier this month to replace Chris Sauseda. He will inherit a team that finished 9-9, but advanced to the TAPPS Class 1A/2A state championship game this spring for the first time.

Faith Academy Athletic Director Jason Driver said Sauseda left the program to focus on his family and his career.
