West Georgia Tech has hired former University of West Georgia catcher Monica Mills to lead its softball program.
The Calhoun, Ga. native played collegiately at the University of West Georgia, where she started as a catcher in both her freshman and sophomore seasons. Injuries plagued her junior and senior years.
Mills prepped at Gordon Central High School in Calhoun.
"We will put emphasis on playing what you would call small ball," Mills said. "We want to be very aggressive on the bases and manufacture runs. Home runs are great but in this day and age you have to be able to hit line drives and score runs in several different ways."
