Duxbury, Vt: Chris Langevin, Harwood Athletic Director, announced today there will be a new head coach for the Highlanders Softball program this Spring. “I am pleased to announce that we have offered the position of Varsity Softball Coach to Caitlyn Lamson, and she has accepted graciously. As always, I am excited to have a Harwood Graduate return to their program to give back and coach the next generation,” Langevin said. “The excitement and passion with which Caitlyn talks about softball is incredible, and I can’t wait for her to bring that positivity to our team.”
Caitlyn was a 2016 graduate of Harwood Union High School, where she played Track and Field, Varsity Basketball for three years as a captain for one, and Varsity Softball for three years as captain for one.
“One thing I remember more than anything from my years in varsity sports were my coaches. Always being pushed to be the best athlete I could be, making those connections, and gaining knowledge beyond the sport itself, is a privilege I will hold with me forever,” Lamson said, “I’m very excited for this upcoming season to see these girls grow and help them to really understand all aspects of the sport. I think having the girls who are coming up from the new middle school team is such a huge advantage to have, since their mindset is already shifting into varsity mode. All in all, I’m ready for a strong, competitive season and to give them the experience they will hold with them far beyond high school.”
Lamson’s first game as the Harwood’s Softball coach is scheduled for April 14th, when the Highlanders host Hartford High School, with first pitch scheduled for 4:30pm. Spring Practices open for Harwood on March 23rd.
