Holly Smith is in her 9th season as the Head Softball Coach for the Lady Patriots Softball Program at St. Catharine College.

Smith, a 2003 graduate of Lindsey Wilson College, began her coaching career as a Student Assistant, then becoming an Assistant Coach for one year before taking on the position at St. Catharine College and has productively lead the program since.

Last season, the Lady Patriots finished fourth in the hard-hitting and very competitive Mid-South Conference, their first year eligible for post-season play. The Lady Patriots had 1 All Mid-South Conference selection as well as 1 player named to the MSC Academic All-Conference team.

In 2009, the Lady Patriots first year as a four year program, they won the USCAA National Championship.

"I am tremendously excited about the opportunities that St. Catharine College has given many young athletes," noted Head Coach Holly Smith. "The college has come a long way since my first season here. The family atmosphere is incredible and the desire to see young people not just athletes succeed, is felt campus wide. The growth of the campus as well as the growth in the number of students attending St. Catharine shadows the success of past students and is a great outlook to the future of the college. And I see daily how my program is growing and heading in the same direction as the college."

With the entire athletic program now full force into the NAIA, the athletic programs are excited about the move. "The softball program is extremely excited about being a four year institution. Now we not only have the opportunity to develop players and get them headed into the right direction on the field, but we get the chance to see them grow and mature into quality college athletes as well as young successful adults,” quoted Coach Smith.

Looking forward to the season as it should be one of excitement as well as success. This season will highlight the future of the program as a whole.

Look forward to an exciting year of softball at St. Catharine College. Come out and show your support. Let’s go Lady Patriots!!!
