2nd in 2015

Monica Platts-Tantlinger was hired in September, 2013 as only the sixth head coach in the history of the Pasadena City College softball program. Platts-Tantlinger begins her second season in charge of the Lancers in 2015.

In her debut season of 2014, she directed a team that generated offense as PCC scored 10 or more runs eight times, including a season-high 20 v. LA Harbor. Platts-Tantlinger guided the progress of All-South Coast Conference catcher Allison Lacey, who was also a Southern California Player of the Week selection in March.

It's the first head coaching job for Platts-Tantlinger after being an assistant coach in 2013 at East Los Angeles College. Her coaching resume includes extensive NCAA Division I experience as an assistant at Purdue University (2009-2012) and UC Riverside (2006-2009). 

Platts-Tantlinger was a California Community College student-athlete herself when she played as an All-Foothill Conference player at Antelope Valley College in 2002-2003. She went on to earn a scholarship to play at Cal State Fullerton and later was an undergraduate assistant coach for the Titans in 2005-2006.

Platts-Tantlinger, who earned a B.A. degree in communications at CS Fullerton and a master's in kinesiology at Texas College, becomes just the sixth head coach in the history of PCC softball.

"I'm very excited about the opportunity to be a head coach, and look forward to building the Lancers into a top South Coast Conference program," Platts-Tantlinger said. "I understand the nature of being a player and coach at this level. There's a great history here that was created by a legendary coach in Sandi Iverson. One of my goals is to bring PCC back into postseason play."
