After a celebrated four-year career with the Harvard softball team, Rachel Brown ’12 has been named an assistant coach for the Stony Brook softball team, the program announced Thursday. Brown will serve as the team’s pitching coach under head coach Megan Bryant.

“I am thrilled that Rachel is taking advantage of the opportunity to coach at Stony Brook,” said Harvard softball head coach Jenny Allard. “Rachel is a true student of pitching with a deep understanding of what it takes both physically and mentally to be successful in the circle. I wish her great success at Stony Brook.”

Brown graduated as one of the most decorated pitchers in Harvard and Ivy League history. A two-time Ivy League Pitcher of the Year and four-time All-Ivy League first team selection, Brown owns the program career records for strikeouts, wins, saves, complete games and shutouts. She capped her career with a stellar performance at the 2012 NCAA Seattle Regional, where she pitched every inning for Harvard and led the Crimson to upsets in back-to-back elimination games over Maryland and No. 23 Texas Tech. She also helped Harvard reach its first regional final in the history of the program.
