Ashley Lewis-Rush Named Central A.D.

Central schools Supt. Jason Fountain has appointed former college softball coach and Central High graduate Ashley Lewis Rush as the new Athletic Director of the Central Community School System.

Prior to the hire, the athletic director position was held by Coach Sid Edwards, who will continue to serve as Head Football Coach. Fountain said, “Splitting these positions will allow Coach Sid to continue his focus on building a championship football program for years to come. This also allows our other sports programs to receive greater attention so that we can create an all-around elite athletic program.” 

“In a district of our size, we need an individual who can coordinate all of our athletic programs and work with other feeder programs, such as middle school and community youth sports programs, to ensure our students are given every opportunity to develop and compete at a high level,” he said.

Rush formerly coached college softball teams at Northwestern State, and SLU, and Kentucky.

She attended Central High School from 1994 to 1997 and won two state championships while a member of the softball team. She was named the first “Miss Louisiana” in softball in 1996. Rush played softball at Texas A&M and LSU.

She is married to sports radio personality and former LSU football player Gordy Rush. They moved to Central in 2011 to raise their family. Their three children all attend schools in the Central Community School System.
