KP softball's Leonard stepping down

January, 3, 2013
King Philip softball head coach Jim Leonard told ESPN Boston Thursday that he's stepping down from his post.

Leonard, who works in the special education department at KP, cited his family's importance and being able to spend more time with his children as the deciding factors.

The Warriors won back-to-back state Division 1 championships in 2010 and 2011 during Leonard's 10-season tenure on the bench. KP also claimed the last six consecutive Hockomock League titles and accumulated a record of 149-17 under Leonard.
