Bowling Green AD D. Christopher Kingston has announced Sarah Willis as the program’s new head coach.
Willis, a longtime assistant with an impressive resume, has had stints at Princeton; Southeast Missouri State; Texas Tech; and Dayton.
In 2015, Willis’ first season at Dayton, she helped lead the team to a program-best thirty-nine victories and the regular-season Atlantic 10 title. In charge of the team’s pitching staff, she tutored the A10 Pitcher and Rookie of the Year in Kayla English and Manda Cash, respectively. Willis’ staff led the conference in seven categories, including wins, winning percentage, and strikeouts.
Willis has served in a variety of roles through her career, including student assistant at Texas Tech, her alma mater; pitching & position coach at Princeton; and recruiting coordinator with both the Tigers and Southeast Missouri.
Willis’ resume also boasts a year as an NPF assistant coach in 2012, when she was on the staff of the Carolina Diamonds.
As a player, Willis was a four-year member of the Red Raiders of Texas Tech. She made 113 appearances and earned twenty-two wins and 298 strikeouts during her career in the circle.
At the helm of the Falcons program, Willis will replace Shannon Salsburg, who was dismissed following the regular-season's end on May 5th. The Falcons went 20-28 this season, with an 8-14 record in conference play, and missed the postseason.
