Rick Shoemaker is the new Softball Coach at Northwest Guilford High School…Got confirmation from Northwest Guilford HS Athletic Director John Hughes today and Coach Shoemaker will lead the 2016 Northwest Guilford softball team when they take the field in the Spring of 2016…

Coach Shoemaker replaces Teresa Fister who led the Viking softball team for four years, compiling an overall record of (72-25) and her conference coaching mark stood at (40-3)…..

Coach Fister stepped down this past Fall/2015 and now Coach Shoemaker takes over and he is no stranger to Northwest Guilford athletics…Coach Shoemaker’s sons have been members of the NWG baseball team the over the past 5 seasons and now both young men, Marcus and Zack are part of the baseball program in Hickory, with the Lenior Rhyne Bears….Baseball and Softball in the Shoemaker’s blood and Rick Shoemaker’s dad was a long-time youth baseball coach in the Colfax, Southwest Guilford and Northwest Guilford communities….

New baseball leadership at Northwest Guilford and best of luck to Coach Shoemaker, as he takes over the leadership of the Northwest Guilford Vikings’ Softball program….
