May to coach Warriors next season

Danville Community High School Athletic Director Jon Regashus announced earlier this week that former Avon High School basketball standout and Butler University player Kaley May will take over the reins of the Warriors’ girls’ basketball program next season.

“From the very beginning of our search, coach May was extremely impressive in every aspect of the process,” Regashus said in a press release. “Her professionalism, experience, organization, and basketball pedigree make her the right person to lead our girls’ basketball program.”

The Avon alum was a member of the 2008 Indiana All-Star squad and played four years at Butler, graduating in 2012.

May has spent the past year as the junior varsity coach and varsity assistant coach at Southport High School.

“Honestly, I didn’t expect to get as much as a look as I did,” May said. “I’m very humbled by the fact that I was chosen out of so many respectable applicants.”

According to the school’s press release, May was chosen from a pool of 26 applicants and will begin teaching social studies next year at the high school.

May started all four years with the Orioles and was one of their all-time career leaders in scoring and rebounding. After high school, she helped Butler to four consecutive WNIT tournament appearances, along with three 20-plus wins in her tenure.

May said she did not believe the option to become a head coach would come along so soon, but it was what she’d hoped would eventually happen.

“I definitely did not expect to have the opportunity so soon,” she said. “When I heard about the Danville position opening up, I thought it was a great opportunity for me to achieve one of my career goals and that’s why I went after it.”

May has already met with members of the Danville squad that brings back all but one player from a year where the Warriors advanced to the sectional final and finished with a 12-11 record.
