Meghan Mulcahy to Head Softball Program

—By Laura Nelson on 07/12/2012 Meghan Mulcahy Meghan Mulcahy Goodwell, Okla.—Pending approval by the Board of Regents for the Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical Colleges, Meghan Mulcahy will take over as head coach of the softball program at Oklahoma Panhandle State Univ. following the departure of Rachel Burleson, who resigned to take an assistant athletic director position at Western State in Gunnison, Colo.

Mulcahy served as the assistant softball coach under Burleson last year, and with her new duties, she will also fill the senior women's administrator position and will continue to teach. After graduating from McIntosh High School in Peachtree City, Ga., she played catcher at Nicholls State in Thibodaux, La. where she earned a bachelor's degree in psychology then a master's in kinesiology from the Univ. of North Texas in Denton.

She takes over a program that has improved dramatically under Burleson's direction, going from a 3-47 season in 2011 to a 19-30 season in 2012. Mulcahy said, "Since I've already been involved with the program and know the players, I'm familiar with their strengths. I look forward to the upcoming season and building on last year's success."

Athletic director Wayne Stewart said, "I have every confidence in Meghan's ability as a head coach and believe that OPSU can look for a great season this coming year."
