Bethune-Cookman names Lindsey assistant coach
Bethune-Cookman University Head Softball Coach Chris Cochran announces the appointment of Amanda Lindsey as an assistant coach for the two-time Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference champions.
The all-time leader in career strikeouts (828) at Stetson University, Lindsey’s playing career from 2006-2010 was highlighted by 70 victories, including 28 shutouts, two no-hitters and a perfect game during her senior year in which she finished ranked eighth in the nation in ERA. She also hit 23 home runs, good enough for third all-time for the Hatters.
After graduation, Lindsey served as an assistant at Seminole State College before heading to the Netherlands, where she played professionally for Olympia Haarlem, leading the Dutch league in victories and strikeouts.
While there, she served as co-head coach for the City of Haarlem’s juniors team.
She also logged travel of over 800 miles by bicycle.
Bethune-Cookman finished 33-26 in 2011, including a perfect 12-0 in conference regular season play as it advanced to the NCAA Regionals for the second consecutive season.
Amanda Lindsey is the daughter of Ronny and Debbie Lindsey of Byhalia.
She grew up playing softball in Byhalia from ages 8 to 14 under the guidance of Janice and Doug Wagg with Byhalia Sports Association.
She also played softball at Marshall Academy in seventh and eighth grade where she was awarded the Gold Glove and most valuable player awards.
Lindsey graduated in 2006 from St. Benedict in Cordova, Tenn.
She was the 2006 Commerical Appeal Softball Player of the Year and pitched a shutout against the No. 1 High School Team in the Nation (Keller, Texas).
