As spring sports come back into action, there are always modifications for every team, whether it is the uniforms, the team members, or even the coach(es). This year, the Lady Bengal’s softball team has a new assistant coach, chosen by Head Coach Thomas Robinson to help coach the girls this season. Katelyn Robinson is a second year college student who is not only the daughter of Coach Robinson, but a returning player from the team.

“It’s a really weird feeling; returning to the team, because it’s a completely new group of people for the most part, so it’s a lot different for me,” says Assistant Coach Katelyn Robinson.

Robinson played for Brashier’s softball team two seasons ago as a catcher and a starting pitcher. Robinson was an all around utility player who led the team to several wins.

“Having Kate on the team is really fun because she’s younger and all of the other girls can relate really well with her,” says sophomore Brianna Hutchinson.

As Assistant Coach, Robinson settles into her new position by spending more time with the younger girls she played with her senior year on the team.

“I like having those girls there. It reminds me of when I played and it keeps that same feeling there. Although I only played with those girls for one year, they will always be my teammates, so that makes coaching them extra special,” says Robinson.

Kate won several awards throughout her time as a player for team, continued to stun parents, and became an inspiration to other players.

“I think Katelyn coaching is really good for her. I think that it really helps educate her in the coaching department and will continue so she can become an even better coach,” says junior Katherine Murphy.

Overall, Robinson has shown the ultimate example of leadership by taking time out of her busy schedule and putting it on the ball field for younger athletes to build on.

“It is an extremely different feeling being out on the field coaching and not playing. I like having the ability to coach though, because I get to work alongside my dad and we are both able to work together to put the best team possible out there. The biggest transition is not being the one putting on the jersey for the game,” says Robinson.
