Amherst Softball Coaching Staff
Lynn Hersey enters her fourth season with the softball team and her first as Interim Head Coach, and also serves as Co-Head Coach for the women's basketball team. As a college basketball player, she was a four-year starting point guard at Plymouth State, earning team Rookie of the Year honors as a freshman and the college's Female Athlete of the Year award as a senior captain. Upon graduating in 2000 with a degree in sports medicine, the Dexter, Maine native began her professional career working for the ECAC, helping oversee championships, marketing and broadcast services. She then earned a master's degree in sport management at nearby UMass Amherst and, shortly thereafter, lent her expertise as a marketing consultant to the Springfield Spirit of the National Women's Basketball League.
