Boyd baseball coach James Karcher is leaving for the same position at Cooper High School.

Karcher recently finished his fifth season with the Yellowjackets. Boyd went 15-16-1 this year and finished third in District 8-3A.

“He did a good job,” said Boyd athletic director Brandon Hopkins. “We’ve had some good kids roll through here and he’s done a good job with them getting them in the playoffs.”

The Yellowjackets advanced to the postseason for the third straight year, but lost to Peaster in the bi-district round. Boyd went 44-45-2 over the past three seasons.

Senior Dylan Couture was named District 8-3A Offensive MVP for his efforts this year. He hit .462 at the plate and drove in 17 runs. The Yellowjackets had three players selected to the first-team.

“Overall I’m pleased with what we’ve done,” Karcher said. “The first year we won eight games and the last three years I think we’ve won 15, 16 and [17] games. It’s my understanding that really hasn’t been done in a while around here. It makes me proud of the kids that I’ve coached. They put a bunch of hard work and dedication into the program. “
