Massillon Washington High School has named Cassie Schrock as its girls high school basketball coach.
Massillon Superintendent Rik Goodright recommended hiring Schrock for the position earlier this week to the Board of Education and she was approved by a 5-0 vote.
Schrock, 25, was a successful player at Wadsworth High School and Eastern Michigan University. She lettered four times at both schools, and served as an assistant coach for two seasons to her father, Denny Schrock, with the Chippewa girls basketball team.
Cassie Schrock was a first-team All-Ohio selection at Wadsworth, and started on a team that reached the Division I state semifinals in 2006. She graduated from Wadsworth in 2007 as the school’s second-leading all-time scorer with 1,391 career points.
At Eastern Michigan, she averaged 12 points per game and was an All-Mid-American Conference second-team selection as a senior. She helped the Eagles to three runner-up finishes in the MAC West Division, and ranks in the top 10 in school history in assists (second, 537), games played (third, 126), points (fifth, 1,506), rebounds (fifth, 761), field goal attempts (eighth, 1,181), steals (eighth, 224) and scoring average (10th, 12.0).
Her 584 free throws made and 811 free throws attempted are No. 1 in school history and rank third and second, respectively, in MAC history.
Denny Schrock has won more than 500 games during a career that includes two stints at Chippewa (1979-2003, 2011-present) and a two-year run at Jackson (2004-06). As an assistant, Cassie helped Chippewa go 19-4 and 22-2 during the past two seasons.
Cassie Schrock takes over a Massillon program that was formerly coached by Mark Green. He guided the Tigers for seven years, posting five winning seasons and an overall record of 93-61.
