Cheatham, who guided the Tornadoes to an 10-2 record and Class 2A playoff berth in 2000, will coach linebackers and special teams, according to ECCC head coach Terry Underwood.

Frazier will also take over the volleyball program at Meridian High, and MHS principal James Bounds said there's a lot of enthusiasm surrounding her arrival.

The final game was shortened to seven innings due to rain that soaked the field and caused several rain delays in play in order to repair the playing surface at MCC Field.
