Where Are They Now: Samantha DeMartine

Who is she? Samantha DeMartine, a former slugging infielder for the Kentucky Wildcats.

What is she known for? DeMartine was part of the 2011 UK squad that upset the Michigan Wolverines in Ann Arbor to advance to the Super Regional round of the NCAA tournament. In her senior season that same year, she batted .306 with ten home runs and thirty-four RBI. For her career, she boasted twenty longballs and ninety RBI.

Here's something interesting... As a high-school softball standout in New York state, DeMartine was five-times named an all-State selection.

Quotable quote: "I have learned that it is beneficial to continually seek the life lessons that come with our sport. Whether that is through winning, losing, succeeding, and/or struggling."

What's she up to now? Since 2013, DeMartine has been the head softball coach at Asbury University, an NAIA school in Wilmore, Kentucky. In 2.5 seasons in the position, DeMartine holds a .424 winning percentage and her Eagles were the conference tournament runners-up in 2014, her first full season on the job.
