Palmyra’s Chris Parsons announced Wednesday that he is resigning as the head girls basketball coach after eight seasons. He says he’s been thinking about this since the end of the season.

His teams has been to two state quarterfinals and won three district titles.

He says the individual players left the best memories.

His record at Palmyra was 171-46, and his career mark is 270-125. Parsons was hired in 2012 after five years at Smith-Cotton.
