Kyler Jackson has been the head softball coach at Thomas Jefferson High School since 2006.  In 8 seasons at Thomas Jefferson, Coach Jackson has led the Lady Spartans to 30 consecutive league victories, 4 consecutive undefeated league seasons (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) as well as a 4A league title (2012).  In 2008, Coach Jackson coached the Denver R.B.I. (Reviving Baseball in the Inner Cities) softball team of high school freshmen, sophomores and juiors who won the Mid-Western region title and qualified for the World Series in Los Angeles, California where they finished 3rd in a division that included College freshmen and sophomores.  Coach Jackson’s Colorado Eclipse 12U Club team won last year’s local (Denver) Babe Ruth tournament. Also in 2012, Coach Jackson led a team made up of the Colorado Eclipse 12U and AGSA 12U to the Colorado Babe Ruth 12 & Under State Championship and qualified for the 12U regionals.  In 2013, the Eclipse 14 & Under team won its first ever State Championship at that level.  With the bulk of the team returning, the girls hope to repeat as back-to-back champions.

Assistant Coach – Autumn Sanders

Coach Sanders started playing softball at a young age and had the opportunity to play for three years at Thomas Jefferson High School because her school did not have a team.  She was first team All-City and Honorable Mention All-State her senior year.  She was offered a scholarship for basketball and softball at a Division II college in Illinois but ultimately decided to attend the University of Maryland and put sports on hold.  Since graduating, she coached a middle school team in Pueblo, Colorado and assisted George Washington’s High School.  This past year she coached both softball and basketball at Thomas Jefferson.
