Brittany Williams Promoted To PCC Softball Head Coach
Brittany Williams was promoted to head coach of the Pasadena City College women's softball team. Williams served as an assistant coach for the Lancers this past season and now will be in charge of the program, starting with the 2012 squad.
Williams becomes the fifth head coach in the 35-year history of the program. She takes over the part-time coaching position in replacing Josh Musselman, who directed the Lancers in the 2011 season.
"I am looking forward to be a head coach at a college with such a prestigious athletic history," Williams said. "There is great potential for success in the softball program at PCC, and I'm incredibly excited and grateful for this opportunity."
In 2010, Williams worked as pitching coach at Lafayette College (Pennsylvania) after completing her college playing career at Sonoma State University (Rohnert Park, Calif.)
At Sonoma State from 2007-2009, Williams excelled as a starting pitcher. She led the team in all pitching categories as a junior including nine wins and four shutouts, then pitched an 11-5 season as a senior and the Seawolves' No. 2 ace in 2009. She finished fourth in school history in career starts and career pitching appearances.
Williams was a member of the CCAA All-Academic team in 2008. She graduated from Sonoma State with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology in 2009.
In 2006, Williams attended Cypress College as a redshirt before transferring to Sonoma State.
In 2005, Williams originally earned a playing scholarship at NCAA Division II Arkansas Tech University. As a freshman, she won nine games and was a regular in the Golden Suns batting lineup as a first baseman-pitcher. She pitched nine victories and batted .264 with 22 RBI in her one season there.
As a prep athlete, Williams was an All-South Coast League selection at Capistrano Valley High. A scholar-athlete all four years, she also was team captain as a senior in 2004.
Williams is currently working on her master's in coaching and athletic administration at Concordia University, Irvine.
