Post ISD made three additions to the athletics program’s coaching staff. The school named Makenzi DeCrow as the new head softball coach. In addition to her hiring, the school hired Suzanne Francis as an assistant to the girls middle school basketball program and the high school volleyball program. The school also brought back former head basketball coach Billy Garza to the coaching staff to assist the football, girls basketball and softball programs.
DeCrow hails from Grand Junction, Colorado. She was previously the assistant varsity softball coach for the Hobbs Lady Eagles, a 5A school in New Mexico. DeCrow has ties to West Texas, as she graduated from West Texas A&M University in 2019 with a bachelor’s of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. Although this will be her first stint as a head coach, DeCrow achieved great success on the field as a softball player. To go along with her successful playing career, DeCrow holds the school record for most home runs in a season for North Platte Community College, the school that she played at before suffering a career-ending injury that led to her transferring to WTAMU to finish school.
