WILLIAMS COACHING BIO
Brittany Williams was named the fifth head coach in Pasadena City College women's softball history in July, 2011. It is the first head coaching position for Williams, who originally joined the PCC family as an assistant coach for the Lancers that year.
Last season, Williams picked up her first career coaching victory when the Lancers blanked San Bernardino Valley College, 8-0, at the season-opening Glendale Tournament. Although the team went through growing pains in the rookie coaching year of 2012, Williams saw two of her players earn 4-year university scholarships. Centerfielder Brittany Skoien became the first PCC player to make the All-South Coast Conference First Team since 2008. Skoien, the conference leader in on-base percentage at .588, is now at William Penn University (West Des Moines, Iowa). Third/first baseman Ilene Suleymanyan took her playing talents to Alcorn State University (in Mississippi).
Williams served as pitching coach in 2010 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 selected to 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 and was 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 accomplished an All-South Coast League selection at Capistrano Valley High. A scholar-athlete all four years, she 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.
Assistant Coach--Mary Geer, 20th season in 2013
Mary Geer continues the longest current tenure by an assistant coach of any women's sports team at Pasadena City College as she begins her 20th season in 2013. A true loyal Lancer, Geer played for retired Coach Sandi Iverson in the 1984-85 seasons and was the second baseman on a Lancer team that finished fifth in the state.
In her sophomore-playing season, Geer was honored with an Elizabeth Jensen Scholarship Award.
Geer has worked as an elementary school teacher for the past 25 years and served as the Success For All Reading Program facilitator for the West Covina Unified School District. She was honored as a California Teacher of the Year for 2002. Recently, Geer earned the state's PTA highest public service honor -- The Golden Oak Service Award.
Currently, she teaches second grade and also instructs fitness classes at East Los Angeles College.
Geer also coached girls’ basketball for five seasons at Bishop Amat High School and directed a league championship team.
In 2001, Geer was honored along with Coach Iverson and pitching coach Wayne Maxwell as the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Community College Coaching Staff of the Year.
