Baseball coach leaving
Published 10:41 am Thursday, December 9, 2021
Davie will have a new baseball coach in 2022. Bradley Rudisill is leaving after coaching the varsity War Eagles for three years.
Rudisill, 31, graduated from Bandys High in 2007 and from Appalachian State in 2013. He had several coaching stints before arriving in Mocksville. He was an assistant at Watauga High from 2011-13. He was an assistant at Bandys in 2014 and at Montreat College in 2015. He returned to Bandys before landing his first varsity job at South Point High (S.C.).
Rudisill’s first year at Davie resulted in its first conference championship in seven years. That 2019 team went 22-4 overall, 9-1 in the league and advanced to the third round of the 4-A playoffs. The abbreviated 2020 season saw Davie lose three of five games, the season ending in early March because of COVID-19. Last spring Davie went 5-8 and finished fourth in the conference.
Rudisill’s three-year record at Davie was 29-15.
