Ellie Hanover To Be Named New Niagara Softball Head Coach
Former MAAC batting champion Ellie Hanover is returning to the conference, and will soon be named Niagara University's new softball head coach.
Ellie Hanover has spent the last three seasons as the head coach of Belmont Abbey College, a division 2 school in Charlotte, NC. Prior to that, Ellie coached division 2 Florida Tech, leading them to a school record of wins. She began her coaching career in her native Buffalo, NY, first with Erie Community College, then with D'Youville where she was twice named NEAC Coach Of The Year.
Ellie Hanover played college softball with the Canisius Golden Griffins, and led the MAAC in 1997 with a batting average of .451, which is still the ninth highest in conference history. She was named All-MAAC and All-MAAC Tournament that season.
Congratulations Coach Hanover!
