Softball team starts with new cast

Glenn Banker’s return for his second year as head coach of Ennis softball marks the first time in four years the team hasn’t been introduced to a new skipper. Rodney McNeill led the team to the state championship in the spring of 2014. He handed the baton to assistant Magen Butler in 2015, who did the same to assistant coach Kendal Newton in 2016. Then she departed for Red Oak, which led to Banker’s first campaign last year. The Lady Lions were young and had a core of four players. What they lacked was leadership. Minus a take-charge role model in the dugout, Ennis struggled internally and faded late to finish at 10-14. A fifth place 4-6 record in District 17-5A also meant the unit failed to earn one of four playoff berths given to the six-team league.
