March 15, 2023
Sweet Home softball has a new head coach this season, albeit a familiar face in the program.
Emily Marchbanks, an assistant coach for the team for the last four years, replaces Karyn Hartsook, the head coach for the previous six years.
Marchbanks, 26, grew up in Sweet Home, graduating from Sweet Home High School in 2014, where she played softball, volleyball and basketball.
After high school she went to Clackamas Community College for two years and then Newberry College in Newberry, S.C., where she earned a degree in math education and played softball as a pitcher at both schools.
