Athletic Director Steve Eskridge is pleased to announce that former Assistant Coach Kelley Kaneshiro will assume the role of Head Softball Coach.
“I could not be more pleased that we were able to keep Kelley on board after a successful 2016 season, ” Eskridge stated. “Kelley brings great experience as a coach and former NCAA Division 1 player, but most importantly she understands what it means to be a part of Shoreline Community College.”
Kaneshiro spent last season as an Assistant with the program and helped the Dolphins reach the NWAC Tournament as well as a #10 RPI ranking. Prior to joining the Phins, Kaneshiro spent one season as an Assistant Coach with Indiana Purdue Fort Wayne where she focused on position players and hitting. Kaneshiro had a decorated career at Utah State where she still holds the career records for home runs and slugging percentage. Her single-season home run marks rank first (2010), third (2011), third (2008), and ninth (2012) all-time in program history.
Kaneshiro will also join the Athletic Department as a Recreation and Athletic Specialist for the 2016-17 school year. She begins her duties as Head Softball Coach immediately and begins her new position in the Athletic Department on September 17th.
