Glen Blessing has resigned as the Wilmington High School softball coach, according to athletic director Troy Diels.
Blessing told members of the softball program on Wednesday about his decision to not return in 2019, Diels said.
“I have been feeling pretty torn between my responsibilities as a husband and father and the responsibilities as the head coach of the softball program,” Blessing said in a statement. “I can no longer commit the time and energy that is needed to develop and grow the program. I am missing out on too much at home and that’s where I want to be.”
Blessing was the varsity head coach of the Lady Hurricane for seven seasons. He had a 75-65 record as head coach.
Wilmington was 9-10 this season and finished third in the SBAAC American Division.
The Lady Hurricane also were third in their final season of the South Central Ohio League in 2017.
“I am grateful that I had the opportunity to coach for as long as I did,” he said. “I am grateful for the many friendships and memories that were made.”
