Coach Sims is a 2010 graduate of Flower Mound Marcus High School where she was a 4 time all-district selection at third base and shortstop. After high school, she played her freshman year at Sam Houston State She then transferred to Abilene Christian University where she was first team All-Conference as the DH and Newcomer of the Year for the Southland Conference in 2012.
Coach Sims was ranked among the top 3 in 9 different offensive categories in 2013 and finished the season with 10 home runs and 32 RBI. In her final year at ACU, she was twice honored with the Southland Conference Player of the Week.
After her playing career at ACU, Coach Sims joined the ACU coaching staff as an assistant coach for the 2014-2015 season. She was then named the lead softball instructor/camp coordinator at DBAT DFW from May of 2015 to July 2016. In August of 2016 she joined the coaching staff at Wylie East High School as the varsity assistant softball coach where she was able to assist in the turnaround of the program. Wylie East had consecutive winning seasons for the first time in school history during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
Coach Sims and her husband, Herschel, live in The Colony.
Thank you again to Mr. Chris Choat, RHS Principal, Coach Leslie Slovak, RISD Athletic Director, and all members of the process in finding a great fit for Richardson High School!
