LOGAN, Utah - Utah State softball associate head coach Windy Thees has been named to the coaching staff for the Under-22 Great Britain Fastpitch National Team, where she will serve as the pitching coach.
Thees will join Gina Carbonatto, an assistant at UC Davis, on the national team staff. Johanna Malisani will be the head coach of the team. The newly-created U22 team will compete in the Women's European Championship held in Trnava, Slovakia, July 23-28.
"What an amazing opportunity I've been given to join the Great Britain U22 squad's coaching staff," Thees said. "The expansion of Great Britain's national teams to three squads increases the opportunities for female athletes and will ultimately make the Great Britain program stronger in its pursuit of an Olympic berth. I look forward to sharing my passion for the game of softball with the other coaches this summer in Italy and Slovakia."
Thees is in her third season on the USU coaching staff. Prior to coming to Logan, she had head coaching stops at Ole Miss, Memphis and Georgia College and State.
