Ralph Aceto, who coached the South Portland softball team to its lone Class A state championship in 2010, is returning to the program this spring as head coach. Aceto, who coached from 2009-14, going 96-17, replaces Alexis Garrison, who coached the program the past three seasons. Aceto, a South Portland graduate, was The Forecaster’s choice for Southern edition Coach of the Year in both 2009 and 2010.
“We are pleased to have Coach Aceto rejoin our staff,” said South Portland athletic director Todd Livingston. “He is a great coach, leader and role model for our student-athletes while setting high expectations for his players and the program.”
