Hall of Fame Highlight: Coby Mackin

Hall+of+Fame+Highlight%3A+Coby+Mackin

Former Spring Hill College softball head coach Coby Mackin (softball, 1998-2005) will be inducted into the Spring Hill College Athletic Hall of Fame in the fall.

After a standout career as a college softball player at crosstown rival University of Mobile, Coach Coby Mackin was selected to become the first head coach in Spring Hill College softball program history. Mackin led the Badgers for eight seasons from the inaugural season in 1998 through 2005. She led the Badgers to an amazing 43-17 record in their first season. The second season was even better, as the Badgers won the Gulf Coast Conference Championship on the way to a third-place finish in the NAIA National Tournament. The Badgers would make three national tournament appearances in Mackin’s eight seasons on the Hill and were consistently nationally ranked. She finished her career with a 289-138-4 record, coached 10 All Americans, 25 All-Region and 48 All-Conference student-athletes. Mackin also served as both Athletic Director and Assistant Athletic Director during her time at Spring Hill.

The ceremony, set for the evening of October 19 at Byrne Memorial Hall, will also feature the enshrinement of fellow Badger alumni Jeff Burg (’94), Joe Imorde (’61), Monica DeSilva Kelsey (’02), Tony Younger (’02), Jennifer Cunningham (’99) and the recognition of the inaugural 1998 softball team that finished 43-17. The Spring Hill College Athletic Hall of Fame has enshrined the best in Badger athletics since 1972. There have been 150 student-athletes and coaches honored in the SHC Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame members include nationally renowned sports figures such as Nick Bollettieri, who founded IMG Academy, and Dr. Ferdie Pacheco, Muhammed Ali’s fight doctor.
