Monday, 22 July 2013

Eastern Illinois University has hired a new softball head coach.

Director of Athletics Barbara Burke says Angie Nicholson will join the EIU staff in early August. Burke says Nicholson recently completed her seventh season as the head coach at Cleveland State University.

Prior to her time at Cleveland State, Nicholson coached one season at Butler in 2006. She also had one season at NAIA member Ursuline College, where she increased the program’s win total from three to 25 in her one season.

Nicholson began her coaching career as the head coach at Cuyahoga Community College (2000-04), where she posted 94 wins and guided the team to the Region 12 Tournament in three of four seasons.

Nicholson played softball at Cleveland State, where she earned her undergraduate degree in 2000. She was a two time All-Conference selection as a catcher.
