Amanda Lehotak Named New Head Softball Coach

Penn State softball has finally found its new head coach in University of Texas San Antonio coach Amanda Lehotak, Penn State announced yesterday.

Lehotak replaces Robin Petrini, who resigned last month after 17 years as the team’s head coach. In her time coaching the Nittany Lions, Petrini compiled a 489-437-2 record with eight NCAA tournament appearances.

While Lehotak doesn’t have the best win/loss record in history — her career record is 188-206 — she was able to lead UTSA to its second winning season in seven years in 2012 with a 27-26 record last season. Lehotak spent two seasons at UTSA, compiling a 51-54 record.

Prior to that, Lehotak was at Jacksonville University for six seasons, five as the team’s head coach. The team improved its win total every year that Lehotak was the coach, and in her final year at the helm in 2011, Lehotak led the Dolphins to a 44-16 record.

Lehotak played collegiately at the University of Mississippi from 2000-01 before transferring to Nebraska-Omaha to finish her career. At UNO, she was a third-team All American, and set the Ole Miss single-season hits record in 2001, a record that she no longer holds.
