Reed steps down as softball head coach
Jamie Reed ’09 announced she is stepping down as head softball coach at Pius X.
Reed has accepted a position at the University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota as assistant softball coach and Coordinator of Athletic Compliance and Operations.
“What I enjoyed most about being a coach at Pius X is being a mentor to the girls and coaching staff,” Reed said. “I loved creating a positive, fun, and competitive environment that allowed the girls to learn, grow, and play at their best.”

“I’d like to thank Jamie Reed for all she has done for the softball program and its players over the last several years both as a player and coach,” Pius X Athletic Director Greg Lesiak said. “She has shown herself to be a great role model and coach for her players.”
Charf wraps up career as baseball head coach

His teams qualified for state nine times, won three state titles and finished runners-up twice. Charf also served for many years prior as an assistant baseball coach.
