Softball Head Coach
Ross Hill enters his third yea as Head Coach of the Lady Falcon softball team. After 33 years of teaching and coaching, and building quite a legacy at Vienna High School, Ross Hill is achieving his initial dream – coaching college softball.
Hill graduated from Vienna High School before attending Greenville College. Upon receiving his degree, he returned to Vienna to teach and coach. He spent his first 12 years at Vienna coaching junior high baseball and basketball, before taking over the high school girls’ basketball and softball programs in 1989.
Hill coached Vienna girls’ basketball for 19 years and boys’ basketball for 2 years, racking up 377 wins on the hardcourt. However, he found even greater success on the diamond. He coached softball for 20 of the past 21 years – stepping away only for a year to watch his daughter play in college. In those 20 seasons at the helm of the Lady Eagles’ softball squad, Hill amassed a record of 630 wins against just 193 losses.
Hill lives in Vienna with his wife, Cherie. They have two adult children – Ryan and Caryn.
