Magazine Lady Rattler head coach Randy Loyd learned last week he will be an assistant coach for the West All Stars in the Arkansas High School Coaches Association all star basketball game this summer in Conway.

The formal announcement will be made today in a news conference at the Arkansas Activities Association in Little Rock.

Loyd, who was the head coach of the West baseball team last year, will be an assistant to Huntsville’s Charles Berry. Loyd is an assistant on the West staff for the second time.

Loyd led the Lady Rattlers to a 27-5 mark during the 2012-2013 season including a share of the Conference 2A-4 West title and an appearance in the Class 2A state tournament.
