Bevill State Community College has named Angelica “Angel” Brown as the new head softball coach for the College’s reinstated softball program.
Brown played softball for Bevill State from 2006 to 2008 and has served as head coach at Maddox Middle School. She has also been an assistant softball coach at several schools.
“I am excited about my first college coaching position, and I am most excited to have the opportunity to lead the return of softball to my alma mater. I feel honored to be chosen by Dr. Ferguson to represent Bevill State through softball once again,” Coach Brown said.
Dr. Larry Ferguson, president of Bevill State, is excited about Coach Brown returning to campus. “I believe her experience and knowledge of the sport will be a great benefit to the athletics program. We are very happy to have her on board,” Dr. Ferguson said.
Coach Brown already has a plan for recruiting and her players. “My immediate plans are beginning to take shape as I am reaching out to high school and travel-ball coaches. I have marked my calendar with several fall tournaments to watch,” she explained.
The College announced in May that athletics, including women’s softball on the Sumiton Campus, would be returning after a five-year absence. In addition to women’s softball, Bevill State plans to return men’s baseball to the Fayette Campus with Coach Joey May and men’s basketball to the Jasper Campus lead by Coach Tommy Suitts. Volleyball will also be returning to the College’s Fayette Campus.
Bevill State’s reinstated sports are expected to resume play in Fall 2017.
