KAHOKA, Mo. (WGEM) -- It's a sport that nearly every school in the Clarence Cannon Conference has.
Only recently, Clark County and Brookfield, remained in the holding pattern when it comes to fielding a baseball team.
However, you can now scratch one of those athletic programs off the list.
According to Clark County principal Jason Harper the Indians will have a baseball team next spring for the first time since 1971.
Harper says they have hired a familiar name, Jerry Jerome, as head coach.
Harper adds Jerome recently met with more than 50 potential players and there's plenty of excitement heading into next season.
Clark County also has a new girls basketball coach. Assistant John Weaver has been named the leader of the Lady Indians and takes over for Kelly Campbell who resigned earlier this spring to spend more time with family.
Weaver had a 77-49 record during head coaching stints at LaPlata and Knox County. He led Knox County to back to back Tri Rivers Conference titles in 2010 and 2011.
