Schmidli Adapting to New Experience at Green City

Longtime Putnam County softball and basketball coach Mike Schmidli is set for a new experience as the Green City girls basketball coach. Schmidli explains how his new job came about.

Schmidli most recently led the Putnam County softball team to a 22-11 record this past fall. He led the Lady Midgets to softball state titles in 1998 and 2003. His last job as a basketball coach was at North Harrison for a four-year tenure. Schmidli says he’s learned to be adaptable as a coach.

That adaptability will serve him well as Schmidli will also be an assistant coach for Putnam County softball this year, in addition to his duties at Green City.

Schmidli takes over a Lady Gophers squad that went 15-13 this past season. Former coach Cody Moore departed Green City to become the principal at Brashear.
