About Our Coaches
Kristen Hunt was named the Rutgers University-Newark softball coach on July 27, 2015.
In Hunt's first season at Rutgers-Newark, she led the Scarlet-Raiders to the programs first winning season in school history!
Hunt comes to Newark after time at Division I Central Connecticut State University, Division II University of Bridgeport and Division III Wheaton College.
Hunt graduated from Wheaton (Mass.) in May of 2011 and was an NFCA All-Region pick that same season. A two-year team captain and 2011 all-conference performer, Hunt immediately headed to Bridgeport in her home state as an assistant coach (2011-2014). As a member of the Knights’ staff, she had her hands in all aspects of the program, developing a strength and conditioning program, planning and running individual practices and much more.
After three seasons at UB, Hunt moved on to CCSU in January of 2014 and helped guide the Blue Devils to the 2015 Northeast Conference title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. While at Central, Hunt played a major role in all recruiting, travel, budgeting, team academic performance, community service, university and NCAA compliance, etc. During that time, the Blue Devils compiled an overall record of 60-30 and a winning percentage of .667, making deep postseason runs in both campaigns.
The Scarlet Raiders had a solid 2014 season that featured 18 wins, including closing the season by winning nine of their final 12 outings.
Laura Messina is in her first season as a member of the Rutgers University-Newark softball coaching staff.
A graduate of Central Connecticut State University in May of 2015, Messina will assist in all aspects of the Scarlet Raider program.
Messina was a standout at CCSU in New Britain, Conn., earning 2014 Northeast Conference Pitcher of the Year honors and earning all-conference accoldades each year in a career that netted her 100 wins. A 15-time NEC Pitcher of the Week honoree, Messina owns Blue Devil records for wins, strikeouts, innings pitched and complete games, remarkably setting most of those marks as a sophomore. She was twice named All-ECAC (2013 and 2015) and led the nation in 2015 with 15 shutouts.
The Marlton, N.J. native and Central Catholic High School graduate led her 2013 and 2015 teams to the NCAA Tournament, squaring off the University of Georgia, University of North Carolina (UNC), Louisiana State University (LSU) and Northwestern State University.
As a coach, Messina has been giving pitching lessons since 2011, providing instruction, mentoring and coaching to student-athletes in skills, technique and competitive strategy. She coached with the East Coast Mavericks, organizing practices focused on skills and strength and conditioning in addition to working with the team’s pitching staff. Messina also spent time as a coach with the Marlton Thunder, playing a similar role with that program.

I had such a great time at the Ramapo College Revolution Softball Camp. I met amazing NCAA players and coaches. They taught and inspired me to do so many things. I can't wait for next year!
This year I made big strides improving my bat speed and I can already see the difference at the plate. This was due to the tweaks the coaches made in my batting stance which allows me to get the bat through the zone quicker. Thanks Revolution Softball, can't wait til next year.
Playing against the other girls in the simulated games was a great way to see how my skills measure up to my competition. It made me even more motivated to take my game to the next level.
