Caston girls coach Davis steps down
Carl Davis has resigned as the girls basketball coach at Caston to take a teaching job at Plymouth High School.
Davis went 34-32 in his three seasons at Caston, making it to the sectional final all three years but falling to West Central each time.
After going 7-15 in his first season, Davis posted back-to-back seasons of 13-10 and 14-7, which marked the program’s best season in 18 years.
The Comets will lose four starters and most of their production to graduation but will return Sarah Holt, an All-Loganland third-team selection who averaged 5.9 points and 2.4 steals per game as a junior, and top outside shooter Jaycee Denton.
Davis took a teaching job at the Weidner School of Inquiry at Plymouth. According to the Plymouth website, the Weidner School of Inquiry at PHS is a small learning community within the high school. It’s part of the Plymouth Community School Corporation’s New Tech initiative.
“Obviously it was a very difficult decision,” Davis said. “I was extremely happy at Caston. There are great students and a great staff at Caston. It’s a great community to be a part of. Being a part of the basketball program made it an even more difficult decision to make. I’m excited to see how the group of girls will play next year. Unfortunately I won’t be in the program but the future is very bright.”
Davis said his new job at Plymouth will allow him to grow professionally and gives him a new challenge in his career. He added his wife works in Mishawaka which was a big factor in his decision to take a job further north.
