SALYERSVILLE - Magoffin County High School softball head coach Tony Skaggs is set to coach in a pair of upcoming All-Star events. 

Skaggs is poised to coach the East Juniors in the East/West All-Star Series at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond on Saturday (June 16).

High school softball players from throughout the state will compete in the Eastern Kentucky University-hosted East/West All-Star Series. Among the East Juniors is Magoffin County standout Erin Bolen. A selection for the East/West All-Star Series is among one of the state's top individual high school softball honors. Each year, top high school softball players from throughout the state come together for the East/West All-Star Series. 

Following the East/West All-Star Series, Skaggs will coach the 15th Region All-Stars in the Southeast Kentucky Softball Showcase at Perry County Central High School in Hazard on Wednesday, June 20. The 2018 Southeast Kentucky Softball Showcase will feature players from 15th, 16th, 14th and 13th regions. 

The 15th Region took the 2017 Southeast Kentucky Softball Showcase title when the event was held in Salyersville. 

Skaggs guided Magoffin County to a 12-13 record in the 2018 season. He coached the Lady Hornets to a 25-5 overall record and a 15th Region runner-up finish in 2016.
