Snead State Community College announced Tuesday that a new Head Women’s Basketball Coach has been named.

Guntersville High School Girls Basketball Coach Kenny Hill will step into the position left vacant by the retirement of Coach Craig Roden.

“Coach Hill is a stellar addition to the coaching staff. His knowledge and experience will enhance our program and continue the tradition of success we’ve had with our student-athletes,” said Snead State President Dr. Joe Whitmore.

“We appreciate the leadership we’ve had the past year under Coach Roden, and we’re excited to see where Coach Hill takes our Lady Parsons next season,” said Snead State Athletic Director Casey Underwood.

Hill has spent the last four years leading the Guntersville Lady Wildcats out of a losing streak to multiple championship wins and advancements to the Sweet 16. The team had only won 9 games over a three-year period, but in his first year, Hill led the team to overcome its 13-game losing streak and complete the season with a record of 23-7. The team won the area championship and advanced to the Sweet 16. Then his career continued to thrive from there.

In his second year, he set a school record for wins at 30-5, won the county, area, and Northeast Regional Championship, and won the AHSAA Class 5A State Championship. He was named the 2022 Marshall County Coach of the Year and the 5A ASWA Girls Coach of the Year. During the next year, Hill coached his team to a 29-5 season with County and Area Championship wins and advancement to the Sweet 16, and the next year, he and his team finished the season with a 20-12 record.

Prior to coming to Guntersville High School, Hill served as Head Boys Basketball Coach at his alma mater, Scottsboro High School, where he coached his teams to win more than 100 games and two Area Championships in 2015 and 2017 with advancement to the Sweet 16 in 2015, 2017, and 2019 for the first time in the school’s history.

His coaching career spans over 20 years, during which he’s also spent time in the classroom teaching standard and advanced biology, botany, zoology, driver’s education, and biotechnology. He is a product of the Alabama Community College System, having earned an Associate degree from Northeast Alabama Community College. He went on to earn a Bachelor degree from Athens State University, a Master degree from the University of West Alabama, and STEM and Driver’s Education certifications from the Alabama Department of Education and Jacksonville State University.

Hill and his wife Brooke, have a daughter, Brylee, and a son, Kajae.
