Moy Steps Down as Edmonds CC Softball Head Coach
LYNNWOOD, Wash. (June 24) – Linsi Moy stepped down as Edmonds Community College softball head coach on Monday. Moy, a former EdCC player, cited wanting to start a family with husband Brandon as the primary reason for her resignation.
"After careful thought I have decided to change directions and focus on my family,” stated Moy. “It has been an exciting adventure returning to Edmonds and been given the opportunity to rebuild the softball program. I am extremely thankful to [Dean, Student Life and Development] Nicola Smith and the Athletic Department for the chance to return to the college and give back to the program that set the foundation for my post EdCC success."
Moy coached the Triton softball team for two seasons and made sure the program will be moving forward in 2014, by bringing in eight new players.
“I completely understand Linsi’s commitment to family and wish her well,” said EdCC Athletic Director Jorge de la Torre. “I want to thank Coach Moy for her hard work and dedication. She greatly improved the program during her tenure.”
A Washington State native, Moy graduated from Inglemoor High School in 1998. The Viking softball team was crowned Kingco 3A/4A Champions (‘96, ‘97, ‘98); District Champions (‘96 and ‘97) and made two appearances at the State Tournament in 1996 (3rd place finish) and 1997 (5th place finish). As the team’s only pitcher her senior year, she played a key role in leading the team to the District Tournament where they completed a successful season record of 18-3.
Moy graduated from Edmonds CC with an Associates of Arts degree in 2000 after a successful athletic career. While at Edmonds, she was named Northern Region Most Valuable Pitcher as a freshman and earned Northeast Division 2nd Team as a sophomore. Moy coached at the high school and college levels before returning to her alma mater in 2011.
EdCC will immediately begin a search for a new softball head coach.
“I wish we didn't have to make this change," said de la Torre. "But it would be ideal to have someone in place by the end of July. With the new on-campus softball facility and the terrific support of the administration here, there is no question that this program is going to take off.”
