Humboldt State athletics announced on Friday that Katelyn Fox will rejoin the softball program as an assistant coach.
Fox is a former HSU team captain and has been the head coach at Eureka High for the past five years.
“We are excited to welcome Katelyn back to our Lumberjack softball family,” HSU head coach Shelli Sarchett said. “Her commitment to the development of student athletes was made very clear during the interview process. She has been in similar shoes as our student-athletes by balancing high academics and high achieving athletics here at Humboldt State. Katelyn will be able to serve as a great mentor in our program, as well as in our Humboldt community.”
Fox has been a popular coach at Eureka High and she says she is looking forward to the new opportunity.
“I am excited to get to represent the green and gold as a coach,” she said. “It is an honor to be a part of such a decorated program. Humboldt State University provided me with a wealth of opportunities, and I can’t wait to give back to the program and the community in a new role.”
Prior to coaching the Loggers, Fox was the assistant coach and youth camp host for South Bay Sports Training from 2011 to 2014.
During her time as a player at HSU, Fox (formerly Graeser) was an Academic All-American, as well as serving as team captain for the 2014 season.
She also played at York College of Nebraska, where she earned Second Team All-MCAC honors.
Fox graduated from HSU in 2014 with a Bachelors of Arts degree in History, before going on to receive her Master’s of Science degree in Kinesiology from California Baptist University in 2020.
