Maska taking over HHS soccer coaching duties

Among the personnel transactions taken at Monday night’s USD 489 Board of Education meeting was the promotion of Jim Maska to head boys and girls’ soccer coach at Hays High School. Maska, who coached with the Hays Soccer Club for 14 years then spent four seasons as an assistant at TMP-Marian and has been an assistant at Hays High the last two years, takes over for Saul Hernandez who resigned at the end of the school year.

Maska inherits a boys team that finished 7-11 this past fall and a girls’ squad that went 13-4-1, winning the WAC title and advancing to the 5A South Central Regional finals.
