North Valley's Kelsey Anchors believed to be first female baseball coach in Oregon

At a time when women are, at very least, gaining a louder voice in our society, it’s refreshing to know a glass ceiling has been cracked in sports: 2008 Olympic (Bremerton, Wash.) high school graduate Kelsey Anchors is the first female coach of a high school boys baseball team in Oregon.
Anchors, who lives in Medford, Oregon, was hired last year at North Valley High School in nearby Grants Pass as a PE/health instructor and an assistant coach for softball and girls basketball. She earned a teaching certificate at St. Martin’s University in Lacey in 2015 and worked first as a substitute teacher and then as a fill-in PE instructor at Central Kitsap Middle School from January to June of 2016
