WORCESTER, Mass. – The College of the Holy Cross has named Quincy Lewis its new assistant softball coach, as announced by head coach Jen Lapicki. Lewis will serve as the team’s pitching coach, in addition to having extensive responsibilities in recruiting, skill instruction and game preparation.
“I am thrilled to have Quincy Lewis joining our program and staff,” said Lapicki. “She not only brings with her a great passion for the game, but a true passion for Holy Cross. Quincy’s knowledge of the game, her collegiate coaching experience and her commitment to student-athlete development make her a great addition to our family.”
Lewis comes to Holy Cross after spending the 2017 season as an assistant coach at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tenn. She helped lead the Lynx to an overall record of 22-21 and a third place finish in the Southern Athletic Association, with two of the team’s pitchers earning All-Conference honors. Lewis has also served as a private pitching coach, in addition to having experience with the Shelby County (Tenn.) School District, Shippensburg (Pa.) Area High School and the 12U Lady Rebels softball program in Elmira, N.Y.
As an undergraduate, Lewis began her career by playing two seasons at LIU Post. She posted a 1.28 earned run average and ranked second in the nation with eight saves in 2014, while helping the team to an appearance in the Division II College World Series. Lewis then transferred to Shippensburg University where she posted a 2.94 earned run average in 2015 before having her career cut short due to injury.
Lewis earned her bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from Shippensburg in 2016, and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in sport administration from Arkansas State University.
