Angie Totaro has been named the interim head coach of the softball program at Middlebury College. She replaces five-year head coach Diane Boettcher, who left the College this past fall. Last spring, Totaro served as an assistant coach under Boettcher as the team set a school record with 24 wins.
"This is something that I've wanted to get into on a more full-time basis," said Totaro. "I'm really excited to have the opportunity to be a head coach here at Middlebury."
"We had a great year here last season (24-8), going to the NESCAC Championship game. We have a lot of our core players back and we'll hope to continue what we were doing last season to get back to the NESCAC title game," added Totaro.
Totaro is a 2003 graduate of the University of Vermont where she was a four-year member of the Catamount softball team. She captained the team as a pitcher her senior year and was a second-team All-America East selection. Totaro ended her career second all-time at UVM in games, complete games, innings pitched and strikeouts. In the summer of 2002, she was one of the 30 players chosen to tryout for the Greek Olympic softball team that participated in the Athens Olympics this past summer.
Last season at Middlebury, she was primarily responsible for working with the pitchers, while also helping with all other aspects of the team. She has worked several camps and clinics at the University of Vermont since 1999, while also working several hitting and pitching clinics throughout the year.
She earned her degree in community development in the spring of 2003.
