The Tritons have won seven region titles and took home the NWAC championship in 1980. Additionally, Edmonds CC has five NWAC top four finishes, the most recent in 2018 (3rd). Softball's home yard, Triton Field, is an on-campus turf facility that is arguably the best in the NWAC.
Tawney named women's athletic commissioner
New assistant softball coach Traci Tawney has been named Edmonds CC's women's athletic commissioner, effectively immediately. Tawney steps into the role vacated by former Triton softball coach Sheryl Gilmore. Tawney played softball four years at the University of Washington where she received her bachelor's degree in Communications. Tawney also has her master's degree in Special Education. Before her arrival to Edmonds she was the head softball coach at Lake Washington High School the past six years, and guided the Kangaroos to the 2A state championship in 2014. Tawney still assists with University of Washington softball clinics, and was a volunteer coach for the program in 2003-04. "Traci's past experiences and values directly align with the NWAC's mission. She will be a great support to our women student-athletes," said athletic director Spencer Stark.
