SOFTBALL: Shay Fuson selected as softball's head coach


Head Softball Coach Shay Fuson

North Idaho College Athletics Director Bobby Lee announced today that after a national search and a very competitive process, the Cardinals are proud to announce Shay Fuson as the new full-time head softball coach.

“NIC softball has great tradition and a history of success,” Lee said. “Shay has a strong passion for NIC softball and I am excited to work with her as she makes her impact with the program.”

She played softball at NIC under Don Don Williams from 2006-2008 and led the team to a first-place NJCAA Region 18 Championship and a second-place NJCAA National Championship in 2007. She was an All-American in 2008 and still holds several records at North Idaho College.

Fuson continued her softball career at Adelphi University and was voted 2011 team MVP and held a team-high batting average while also leading her team in RBIs and total bases. Her team made it to the North East-10 Conference Championship Playoffs in 2011. She graduated from Adelphi University with honors in 2011 and was an NE-10 Second Team All-Conference nominee the same year.

Fuson was interim of the NIC softball team for the past two years, and was an assistant for Don Don Williams the six years previous to that.

Lee would like to give a huge thanks to the search committee, and is excited for Fuson to lead the softball team at North Idaho College.
