GLASGOW, Ky. – Lady Scottie basketball head coach Justin Stinson is stepping down as coach of the team.

Craig Cassady, Glasgow High School athletic director, announced Stinson’s resignation Wednesday. Stinson served as coach for 10 years.

Stinson plans to step away as coach to focus on his existing administrative role to better prepare himself for a prospective principal position, Cassady said.

“His leadership has taken the program to new heights and his 10-year tenure and has been the most successful in school history, as well as one of the most successful in the 4th Region,” Cassady said.

Stinson led the Lady Scotties to a 73 percent winning percentage over his tenure. That’s 227-83 record.

Stinson also led the team to more than 20 win seasons and his teams have advanced to the 4th Region tournament nine times. Lady Scottie basketball has two region championship titles, and they both were won under Stinson’s leadership in 2012 and 2014.

Cassady said the 4th Region stands as one of the toughest girls basketball districts in the state.

In other accolades, the Lady Scotties captured the Class A Title in 2014 and the 4th Region runner-up title in 2016.

“A coach of his caliber will be greatly missed,” Cassady said.

It’s unclear who will replace Stinson, according to Cassady.
