Blaney resigns from W.S. Neal

On Thursday the Escambia County School Board voted unanimously to accept the resignation of W.S. Neal High School math teacher Jason Blaney. The resignation was effective April 12.

Blaney joined W.S. Neal in 2009, coming from Milton High School. He coached volleyball and softball while at WSN. He took over as head coach of softball in February 2016.

This past season the volleyball team won its first area title under his leadership.

In his first year as head coach of softball, the Lady Eagles had a record of 6-22. This season the Lady Eagles are currently 8-12.

Holly Wyatt will serve as interim coach of the softball team, with current assistant coaches under Blaney remaining to help.

Blaney could not be reached for comment at the time of publication.
