Granger named Lady Jay softball coach

With just a month before their first softball practice, Megan Granger has been named the newest St. Edmund Lady Jay head softball coach.
But she has been thrown into the fire before, being named interim head coach at Louisiana-Lafayette after the sudden resignation of head coach Michael Lotief the day before the 2013 softball season began.
“I don’t crumble under pressure,” she said. “If anything out of the ordinary happens I think I am ready for it as I have proved that in the past.”
