Ridgewater College is excited to welcome a new head softball coach to the Warrior athletic teams. Callie Danielson will lead the women’s softball team and provide additional support to the athletics department and to student-athletes.
Coach Danielson has grown up around softball. Her dad was the head coach at Willmar High School for 25 years, instilling in her a deep passion for the game. Since graduating from Willmar High School in 2006, she has coached softball in a variety of capacities – community education and recreation, high school, traveling programs, and most recently, for the College of St. Benedict. She is also a certified Tincher Pitching Instructor and has worked as a pitching coach throughout west central Minnesota.
Danielson shared that she is “very committed to helping student-athletes reach their full potential.” She is very familiar with the local softball community.
“We are very excited to have such a well-connected, passionate and prepared individual interested in leading our softball program,” said Heidi Olson, Ridgewater dean of students. “Coach Danielson demonstrates the type of energy and commitment that we believe will do great things for our student-athletes and for growing our softball program.”
