NECC hires Shappley to lead tennis teams

By NEMS Daily Journal

BOONEVILLE – Northeast Community College has hired Ben Shappley of Ripley as the new head coach for the men’s and women’s tennis programs.
Shappley will take the place of last year’s head coach Lynn Smither and will look to add to Smither’s success.
“We have a very talented and athletically gifted team this year,” said Shappley. “We are a fairly young team with only four sophomores but we are fortunate to have a group of very capable and determined freshmen coming in who were all solid performers at their respective high schools.”
