A challenging pregnancy for Byrd coach Kristen Cole has forced the veteran coach to step down from the program after one year on the job, according to Byrd principal Jerry Badgley and Cole.

Cole is carrying twins, although she lost Logan James at 20 weeks. Lileigh Jo is going strong at 34 weeks and is due to enter the world May 30.

“This pregnancy has really been tough and I haven’t been allowed to do much with the team,” Cole said. “Losing Logan made me realize how life can be really short and I want to be able to spend as much time with Lileigh as I can. I am excited to get to know her.”

The Lady Jackets had long season with mostly underclassmen on the roster. The team finished 4-25 on the season, although it advanced to the LHSAA Division I state quarterfinals in Sulphur.
