HUTCHINSON — The Inman Teutons will have a new baseball coach in 2017.

Jim Preston, who had guided the Teutons since 2011, was announced on Thursday as the new coach at Hutchinson High.

Preston is a 1974 Hutchinson graduate.

He led the Teutons to the state tournament in both 2013 and 2015. He’ll inherit a once-proud Salthawk program that annually made trips to the state tournament, but has not had a winning season since 2009. In the last three years, the Salthawks have a combined 10 wins.

Preston also coaches basketball at Prairie Hills Middle School, which won its league championship last year.
