Kenyon College Revolution Softball Camp
Erin O'Neill, a 2002 Kenyon graduate, became the fifth head coach of Kenyon Softball in 2011. She enters her fifth season and is aiming to continue the Ladies' success over the last two seasons into this year's campaign.
A year ago, Kenyon put together is second straight 20+ win season going 22-16. The 2013 season proved to be one for the record books as the Ladies went on to break 26 different team and individual records by season’s end. The team set a new benchmark for total wins in season (22), tied the record for most conference wins in a season (10), and made their first trip to the North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament since 2006. The Ladies were led that season by NCAC Player of the Year and all-region selection Jamie Samuel, who alone broke 10 Kenyon single-season and career records and finished the season as the nation’s leader in doubles hit per game.
In her collegiate playing days, O'Neill was a four-time All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) player and the first Kenyon woman to be named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association's (NFCA) All-Region team. She still holds the Kenyon career record for runs scored (104) and ranks among Kenyon's top-five all-time leaders in batting average, on-base percentage, hits, stolen bases, and total bases. In 2003, she was named to the NCAC's prestigious 20th Anniversary Team.
Softball was not her only game, though. O'Neill was a sharp-shooting guard for the Ladies' basketball team and concluded her career as one of the 10 best three-point shooters in program history. In 2005, she came back to Kenyon and served as an assistant women's basketball coach for two seasons.
After departing the basketball scene, O'Neill returned to the diamond, this time at Case Western Reserve University, where she spent two seasons as the head softball coach. Prior to that, O'Neill honed her softball coaching skills as a graduate assistant at John Carroll University and as a head junior varsity coach at St. Ursula Academy in Toledo, Ohio.
Located an hour from Columbus, OH, Kenyon College is a beautiful location with multiple fields for our camps use. Day camp is run from 9am-4pm and Extended Day Camp is run from 9am-8:30pm.
My daughter returned from camp with so much confidence. Not only was her game greatly improved, but she has such a passion to keep playing. Thanks again!
