The head coach of the Conner High School softball team has quit amid accusations she tried to hurt a player with a pitching machine.
Kristin Koors abruptly resigned amid the accusations earlier this week, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. Two other softball coaches resigned in support of Koors, according to a Boone County Schools spokesperson.
An investigation into the alleged March 23 incident is underway.
Koors has not been charged with any crime at this point.
In a Boone County Sheriff’s Office incident report, the student claimed Koors intentionally aimed a pitching machine in her direction, hitting her with a ball.
The school district released the following statement Friday:
"A meeting was held last night with the students and Principal Tim Hitzfield. They’ve brought on an interim coach so that the team can finish their season. And the search for a permanent coach is ongoing. Also, two other coaches for that team also resigned in support of Kristin Koors."
