Lyon County looked within its own ranks for a new girls’ soccer head coach.
Abby Smith has been elevated from assistant coach to head coach of the Lady Lyons for the quickly-approaching 2019 season.
Smith takes over for Emilee Workman, who is leaving the head coaching position after guiding Lyon’s girls to a 12-4 record and a 5th District championship last season.
Workman, a former standout player at Dawson Springs, had been head coach of the Lady Lyons the past four seasons.
Lyon returns the bulk of last year’s squad after graduating just two seniors.
The Lady Lyons are scheduled to open the 2019 season at home on Aug. 13 against Hopkins County Central.
