Rigby takes over Idaho Falls softball program

Madison Rigby has been named the new softball coach for Idaho Falls High School. Rigby is taking over as the new softball program director for Idaho Falls High School, replacing long-time coach Traci Wilkinson.

After graduating from Blackfoot High School as a three-sport athlete lettering in soccer, basketball and softball, Rigby played softball at Southern Virginia University in Buena Vista, Virginia. The team made history as SVU’s first softball team to make it to the Capitol Athletic Conference Tournament.

Since returning to southeast Idaho, Rigby has been an assistant soccer coach at Blackfoot High School and for three years has coached 10U and 16U softball teams to championships. She also helped start the Blackfoot Summer League Softball Program, serving as the league’s president and program coordinator for the last two years overseeing 18 teams and 220 girls.

“Madie is in a great position to take over the program here at IFHS”, Athletic Director Pat Lloyd said in a release. “Her lifelong background in the sport makes her a ideal candidate for the job.”

Parent/Player Meeting

Rigby will hold a team meeting for all students interested in softball before the end of the school year. More details about this meeting will come in the near future.
