Ex-Lakota West, La Salle coach Greg Leurck to lead Oak Hills baseball

Lakota West Firebirds head coach Greg Leurck watches from the dugout in the seventh inning of the OHSAA DIV-I State Championship semifinal game between the Lakota West Firebirds and the Jackson Polar Bears at Huntington Park in Columbus, Ohio, on Friday, June 2, 2017. Jackson advanced to the State Championship with a 5-1 win over Lakota West.

DELHI TOWNSHIP - For the first time in several years, Greg Leurck has a coaching job that is just a tad more than two miles away from where he's employed. 

An employee of the Oak Hills School District since 1999,  Leurck is now head coach of the Oak Hills Highlanders baseball team, bringing everything full circle. The Bridgetown Middle School teacher was a junior varsity coach for three years and a varsity assistant for 16 at Oak Hills before taking on head coaching jobs at Talawanda, Lakota West and La Salle. 

Living in Harrison, the previous stops put many miles on his vehicle. 

"It makes it easier being in the district communication-wise and it's a five-minute drive for me to check on a field or get over there for workouts," Leurck said.
