Jim Perrin, who served for three years as the Trigg County High School athletic director, lost his battle with lung cancer on Monday. He was 65.

Perrin coached the Lady Wildcat softball team in 2009. Before joining TCHS as athletic director in 2008, Perrin spent the better part of four decades coaching six different sports. While coaching at Christian County High School, he led the wrestling team to a state title and two runner-up finishes. He’s best known for leading the girls slow-pitch softball team to four state titles, then winning a fast-pitch title in 1996.

Perrin was an assistant athletic director for five years and athletic director for another five at CCHS before coaching softball for a few seasons at Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, Tenn. He retired from APSU in May of 2008 and was hired at TCHS two months later.

Funeral arrangements at Hughart & Beard Funeral Home in Hopkinsville were incomplete at press time.
