BENNINGTON -- Southern Vermont College recently announce the hiring of 2008 Lyndon Institute graduate Alyssa Davis as head softball coach.
An SVC alum, Davis graduated in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Sports Management. This past season, she helped Leanne Baker as an assistant coach for the Mountaineers, a team she played for in college. Davis holds many of the team's records, including career on-base percentage (.487), hits in a season (55 in 2012), and career runs batted in (75).
"This is a great honor to be the new head coach for SVC," said Davis. "Being a part of the program for five years now, I have watched it develop and make huge strides over that span. I am excited to take over and see this growth continue, as well as see these student-athletes continue to succeed."
A 2007 recipient of the Dell Scholarship, Davis utilized her Sports Management course requirements to gain additional experience as an intern with the sports information office, the athletic training office, and as a coaching intern. She was also a four-year member of the SVC women's basketball team for which she also owns records including career three-pointers (138).
Baker has taken the head position at Mercyhurst College, a Division II member of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference.
