Danielle Glosson begins third second season as the assistant softball coach. She works primarily with the Catamount pitching staff.
In 2013, under Glosson's tutelage, sophomore Jordan Garrett broke the Western Carolina school record for strikeouts in a season with 223. Working with Glosson, Garrett has enjoyed back-to-back 100 plus strikeout seasons in her first two years as a Catamount.
In Glosson's first year, she helped guide then freshman pitcher Jordan Garrett to collect 147 strikeouts in 2012, making Garrett the first freshman Catamount pitcher to go over 100 strikeouts since 2006.
Glosson comes to Western Carolina after spending four years as pitcher for Southern Illinois University. The Winston-Salem, N.C. native was a standout hurler for the Salukis' and ended her career with a 2.25 ERA and a 67-40 record on the mound.
As a senior for Southern Illinois, Glosson was named to the Missouri Valley All-Conference Second Team and led the Saluki pitching staff with a 2.21 ERA and a 24-10 overall record. As a junior, she was voted to the Louisville Slugger/NFCA All-Region Second Team. She was also a two-time MVC Scholar Athlete First Team selection.
"I'm really excited to be on the staff and bring some of my experiences as a player, specifically as a pitcher, to this team," Glosson said. "Situations I have been through as a college pitcher will help me be able to help the players get through them and get through them faster."
Glosson played with former Catamount catcher, and current Western Carolina softball volunteer coach, Danielle Reese at North Davidson High School.
