Brevard, N.C. - The Brevard College Athletic Department and Coach Britne Stubbs are pleased to announce the addition of Shona Guevara to the BC Softball Coaching staff as an assistant coach.
"I am thrilled to have Coach Guevara here and very excited to start working with her on this upcoming year," said Coach Stubbs. "Not only was she a stellar pitcher throughout her career at Humboldt State and Lockhaven, she is also an unbelievable pitching instructor and an all around great coach. She has top-notch references across the nation along with an excellent work ethic that I believe will help to take this program to the top."
Guevara comes to the Tornados from Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C., where she served as the pitching coach and also was in charge of the outfield for the Meredith Avenging Angels from 2008-2010. During her two years at Meredith, Guevara helped lead the 2010 team to their first conference tournament win in Meredith softball history and also was influential among several of the pitchers on staff, guiding the team to a 2.48 earned run average as a pitching staff, with one pitcher receiving all-conference recognition.
"I am so excited to work with Coach Stubbs and to be a part of Brevard's softball program," said Guevara. "I know I will learn great things from Coach Stubbs, and can't wait to help continue to build a strong, winning program."
Prior to her work at Meredith, Shona also served as the pitching coach and worked with the outfield at Cabrini College in Radnor, Penn.
Guevara has extensive softball playing experience, having been selected to the 2001 U.S. National team which played in the China International Invitational Tournament in Shanghai, China. She also lettered for one year at Humboldt State University in Arcata, Calif. where she set the Great Northwest Athletic Conference record for most wins with 25, as well as setting records in innings pitched and strikeouts on her way to garnering GNAC Rookie of the Year, All-GNAC First Team, National Fast Pitch Coaches’ Association All-West Region First Team and All-West Region Tournament team honors.
From there, she went on to have a decorated career at Lock Haven University of Pennyslvania where she received All-Region accolades and All-Conference accolades, as well as breaking the school record for most wins in Team history with 19.
Other coaching experience Guevara has includes being a pitching instructor at Grand Slam Academy in Raleigh, N.C. and she has also given pitching lessons, teaching the next generation of softball players basic pitching skills through the use of drills and mental preparation, while promoting positive attitudes and sportsmanship.
Guevara has also logged over 80 hours of volunteer work with softball clinics all over the nation.
"Brevard College is a fantastic school and I feel proud to be a part of Brevard's Athletic Staff," commented Guevara. " I am very much looking forward to a great year and will work hard to help make the softball program the strongest season yet."
