SHREVEPORT—Centenary softball coach Mark Montgomery has announced the hiring of Lyndsey Angus as assistant softball coach. A current member of the New England Riptide of the National Pro Fastpitch League, Angus brings a wealth of knowledge and a competitive spirit to a Ladies team that has earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament in two of the last three years.

 

Montgomery and Angus have sat on the same bench before and are no stranger to each other. Angus played her collegiate ball at the University of Kentucky where Montgomery was an assistant coach. The pair developed a respect for each other in Lexington, Ky., a trait that is vital to the success of any coaching staff.

 

“Having worked with Lyndsey before, I am excited, not only to get a high-quality athlete, but someone who is a hard worker and is extremely loyal,” said Montgomery.

 

Angus was a graduate assistant coach at Valdosta State last season. She is in her third season of playing professional softball and currently leads the Riptide in hitting at a .371 clip. She was named to the NPF All-Star team in 2005 and was an All-SEC selection three years straight at Kentucky.

 

“I am really excited to come to Centenary and work with Coach Montgomery again,” said Angus. “I look forward to continuing my coaching career at a place where things are moving in such a positive direction.”
