Southeast High School has announced Ashley Callihan as its new high school girls basketball coach.
Callihan replaces Craig Nettleton, who announced his resignation at the end of the 2022-23 season after spending five seasons as the Pirates’ coach, guiding the program to three titles.
Callihan has been an assistant coach on the Pirates’ staff since the 2021-22 season. She is also a teacher in the Southeast Local School District.
“We are extremely excited to have Ashley Callihan take over our girls basketball program,” Southeast athletic director Patrick Youel said. “She has been a huge part of the program the last two years, and we are excited for her to continue to grow the great tradition of our girls basketball team.”
Callihan’s approval was confirmed at the May 15 Board of Education Meeting.
Callihan is a graduate of Mogadore High School, where she finished with 1,079 points and was named the Portage Trail Conference’s Player of the Year for the 2013-14 season. She went on to play Marietta College before beginning her coaching career at Baldwin Wallace as an assistant coach.
