Hays High School has named Jim Maska its next boys' and girls' head soccer coach, his hiring approved at Monday night's Hays USD 489 Board of Education meeting.

Maska has spent the last two seasons as an assistant soccer coach for Hays High, with four years prior to that as an assistant at Thomas More Prep-Marian High School. He also spent 14 years coaching in Hays Soccer Club.

Maska takes over for Western Athletic Conference girls' soccer coach of the year Saul Hernandez, who resigned last month after accepting a teaching position in Liberal.
