Cubbage Named Randolph Softball Coach
LC Alum Returns to the ODAC
LYNCHBURG, Va. --- Randolph College Director of
Athletics Tina Hill has named Caroline Cubbage as the new
WildCat head softball coach Tuesday.
“We’re excited to have Coach Cubbage join our team,” said Hill. “She brings with her tremendous knowledge and skill in the sport and a familiarity of the ODAC and the region that will serve us well. We’ve made great strides in the development of our program in recent years and under her leadership we’re poised to take our program to the next level.”
Cubbage comes to the College after spending one season at NAIA’s Concordia University in Seward, NE. While at the helm of the Bulldogs, Cubbage led CU to a 24-18 overall record with a 12-12 mark in the Great Plains Athletic Conference, earning a berth in the postseason conference tournament.
“I am thrilled to join the rapidly growing Randolph College athletic department,” said Cubbage. She added, “The ODAC was an excellent place to spend my collegiate softball career and I am now excited to continue my coaching career in such a well respected conference. I felt a rejuvenated spirit while visiting the campus of Randolph College and am eager to continue building a successful softball program.”
The Bridgewater, VA native also served as a graduate assistant coach at Ball State University in Muncie, IN for two seasons, where she earned her Master’s Degree in Sport Administration in 2009. While at BSU, she assisted with the offense and was also in-charge of the academic progress of all of the student-athletes.
Caroline Cubbage is no stranger to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), as she was a three-time Division III All-American at nearby Lynchburg College, twice earning ODAC Player of the Year honors. She held a career .458 batting average, while sporting 12 individual records at Lynchburg and two ODAC records, including homers (38) and on-base percentage (.563). Cubbage graduated from Lynchburg with a Bachelor’s Degree in Sport Management in 2007.
Cubbage replaces former head coach Jen Steele, who helped produce a 21-win season and the ODAC’s best hitting squad in 2010, along with the WildCat’s second consecutive league tournament appearance.
