Coach Brian White – Varsity Head Coach
Coach Nicole Stevenson – Junior Varsity Head Coach
“Coach Stevie” (as the girls like to call her) has been coaching softball for 8 years. As a player for the College of Idaho, Coach Stevie brings a wealth of knowledge and resources about the game. She has served for both JV and Varsity teams at Eagle, Middleton, and now here at Rocky.
While here, she and Coach Nichols worked together to coach the girls to a JV 2nd place finish in 2013. By 2014, she was at the helm and took her new squad to a 24-0 run ending the season both undefeated and district champions. This earned Coach Stevie the honor of 2014 SIC JV District Softball Coach of the Year.
Stevie and the JVs are off to a good start in 2015 looking for another run at their District title.
Coach Mike Brice – Varsity Assistant & Program Pitching Coach
Coach Brice comes to us from Western Oregon. This will be his first year at Rocky, but certainly not his first in the game. Mike has coached baseball and softball for since the mid-1980s. He has seen much change in the sport. One of the most valuable assets Mike brings to the table is a slightly different approach to pitching – one which has yet to see an overuse or shoulder injury. After 4 years at Linfield College, and a return to help high school pitchers develop in recent years, Rocky softball is looking forward to his contribution both in terms of pitching technique and the mental approach to the mound.
His tenacious attitude and wealth of knowledge should help raise the level of our game even higher.
