J.D. Arnold is the new Mt. Zion Braves baseball head coach.
Arnold succeeds Matt Smith , who resigned earlier.
The Braves reached into the St. Teresa program to get their head coach as volleyball coach Jay McAtee left the Bulldogs for the Braves as did Scott Davis, who coached Mount Zion football before leaving for Meridian.
Arnold is the fourth baseball coach in the school’s baseball history.
I will have more on this developing story in a future print edition of the Decatur Tribune.
