Casa Grande names Sievers head softball coach
Coach brings years of experience to other side of town
Petaluma, CA, December 28, 2015 – Casa Grande High School announced today that longtime Petaluma area coach Scott Sievers has been chosen to lead the school’s softball program. Sievers, a former Petaluma High School baseball player and recent coach will move across town to Casa Grande where he expects to build a fun and dynamic program.
Casa Grande Director Of Athletics Rick O’Brien is very pleased with the new hire and what he will bring to the program. Says O’Brien “We are thrilled to have a quality coach like Scott lead the Casa Grande Lady Gauchos. He brings a great deal of experience, success and energy to our softball program; it’s an exciting time”
Sievers began coaching recreational softball in town before making the jump to travel ball and then high school where he has spent the last 8 years as a coach at Petaluma High. He also played fast-pitch softball for the Lucasfilm Falcons in San Rafael.
Sievers is looking forward to the new opportunity and wants to build on Casa Grande traditions with the some of his own. “My daughters and a lot of my friends went to Casa. I’m excited to officially be a part of the Gaucho family and I want to thank Rick and the administration for their support.”
And about the crosstown rivalry? “Yea, that will be fun. Kurt (Petaluma High coach Kurt Jastrow) has a great program and I was proud to be a part of it. We’re gonna have a great program here too.”
After filling out his coaching staff, Sievers would like to get new uniforms and spruce up the facilities. He also hopes to get a new scoreboard to go along with the new batting cages. “This has always been a beautiful venue,” he says of the main field nestled in among the trees. “Now we have these beautiful batting cages. They’re a tremendous asset to the program and I want to keep building on the past successes to make the future of the program even better.”
The Lady Gauchos will have open conditioning after school starting January 5.
