Waukon softball team returns 15 letterwinners for 2018 season

There will be a lot of familiarity on the field for the 2018 Waukon softball team, but a brand new face will be leading that familiarity. First-year head softball coach Shane Schellsmidt will be taking the reins of the Lady Indian softball program this season and will be welcomed by 15 players returning with enough experience from last season to have earned a varsity letter.

Although new to the Allamakee Community School District teaching staff this past year and new to coaching the Waukon softball program, Schellsmidt is anything but new to the fundamentals and finer points of a ball diamond and being able to coach all of those, and certainly familiar to the local area. An extensive baseball resumé for the first-year softball coach begins with his All-State player accolades in helping Kee High School win a State Championship and finish as State Runner-Up in two other seasons from 1992-1996.

That group of seniors includes Evan Armstead, Garrett Garin, Abe Schwartz, Colin Waters, Isaiah Welch and Mitchell Snitker. “We have a group of seniors that will provide valuable leadership to the younger players,” Waukon baseball coach Jerry Keenan said.
