Howard to coach Co-Lin

Starkville Daily News - - SCORECARD -

WESSON, Miss. – A fa­mil­iar face is re­turn­ing to take the reins of the Copiah-Lin­coln Com­mu­nity Col­lege Lady Wolves soft­ball pro­gram. For­mer Lady Wolf and East Web­ster High School soft­ball coach Me­leah Howard has been tapped to take over the Lady Wolves from long­time coach Allen Kent. Howard was a mem­ber of the Lady Wolves team that fin­ished in sec­ond place at the NJCAA Na­tional Tour­na­ment in 2008.

"Me­leah is a high en­ergy coach that is al­ways look­ing for a chal­lenge," said Co-Lin Ath­letic Di­rec­tor Bryan No­bile. "She has the will­ing­ness to sell our pro­gram and go above and be­yond to get the play­ers that we need to con­tinue our win­ning tra­di­tion, and help take the pro­gram to new heights."

Af­ter Co-Lin Howard con­tin­ued her ed­u­ca­tion at Mis­sis­sippi State Univer­sity where she re­ceived a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in el­e­men­tary ed­u­ca­tion with a mi­nor in math­e­mat­ics and sci­ence. While at Mis­sis­sippi State she coached the South­ern Ice travel team out of Wesson and served as as­sis­tant soft­ball coach at East Web­ster.

Af­ter com­plet­ing her de­gree in 2010 Howard was pro­moted to head coach at East Web­ster of both the fast and slow pitch pro­grams. She also taught mid­dle school sci­ence, al­ge­bra, and al­ge­bra II.

In July of 2012, Howard landed the head coach­ing po­si­tion at Lawrence County High School in Mon­ti­cello for both the fast and slow pitch teams.
