Ketarah DeVries is set to begin her first season as an assistant coach for Bucknell softball after completing an outstanding career as a pitcher at Saint Francis. She will lead the Bison pitching staff, as well as take on the responsibility of team travel.
Despite just graduating with a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Saint Francis in 2017, DeVries had already taken steps toward a coaching career. Most recently she spent time working with the pitching staff at Highland Community College this past summer. She has also worked as a pitching instructor for elementary and high school aged players in her hometown of Forreston, Illinois, during her offseasons, and has worked as an assistant coach for the Freeport Crush, a youth summer travel team, for the past three summers.
DeVries was a team captain at Saint Francis, where she led the Red Flash to the 2017 NEC title, an appearance in the NCAA Regional, a 49-11 overall record, and a perfect 16-0 mark in the conference. She was a two-time First Team All-NEC selection and a two-time ECAC All-Star. She also excelled academically, earning NFCA Division I Scholar-Athlete recognition, as well as Academic All-NEC status.
