LYNDON CENTER, Vt. – After serving as assistant coach this past season, Greer Lemnah has been hired as the head coach of the Lyndon Softball program.
"We're very pleased and excited to have Greer join our department," said Lyndon Director of Athletics Chris Ummer. "Greer was a standout student-athlete for Saint Michael's College and Lyndon Institute, but more importantly an excellent leader. She brings a wealth of softball knowledge as well as a passion for the game that's second to none. In addition, she'll bring a level of competitiveness to everything the team does. Much like other coaches at Lyndon, Greer will focus on developing the person as a whole as well as the softball player."
In her career at Saint Michael's College, Lemnah was a four years starter, primarily in left field; however, throughout her career she played every position except for pitcher and first base, an indication of her versatility and depth of knowledge of the game. As the lead-off hitter and in her senior season, she led the Purple Knights in all statistical categories with a .327 batting average, an OBP of .358, and slugging percentage of .378.
"First of all I would like to thank Chris Ummer and the Lyndon State administration for this opportunity," Lemnah said. "I was fortunate to serve as the assistant softball coach last season, and I'm excited for the chance to work with this wonderful group of women again to continue to build on what we started this past year. With hard work and dedication, I believe that we will bring Lyndon State Softball success both on and off the field."
Lemnah graduated from Saint Michael's College in 2014 with a Bachelor of Art in Media Studies: Journalism & Digital Arts, minors Business Admin & Political Science.
