Trisha (McCormick) Senyo has been named softball coach at Chaffey College.
She takes over a softball program that struggled last season, both in the win column and in having enough players to field a team. The Panthers were just 11-26 overall and 4-11 in Foothill Conference play.
She spent last season as an assistant at Riverside Community College, working primarily with infielders.
She has also coached locally in travel ball so she has a good grasp of the talent in the area.
“The biggest thing will be getting to know the ins and outs here at Chaffey but everyone has been supportive and helpful,” she said. “There is a lot of talent in this area and there is no reason we can’t turn it around pretty quickly.”
Senyo, 29, worked at Division II Sonoma State from 2010 to 2014, serving as an assistant softball coach and as strength and conditioning coach for all of the school’s athletic teams.
She was a standout athlete locally, excelling on the softball team in her four years at the University of La Verne where she was an All-SCIAC selection.
Senyo and husband Mike, a strength and conditioning coach at Whittier College, reside in La Verne.
