Ron Shoemaker is the new La Salle softball coach

Ron Shoemaker has been named the new head softball coach at La Salle.

Shoemaker is extremely familiar with both the A10 and the Philadelphia area, having coached at La Salle and Temple before his recent stint as the associate head coach at St. Joseph's. Shoemaker helped lead the Hawks to new heights in the A10 and he is sure to do good things with this La Salle program.

This hire definitely receives the grade of an A. Shoemaker knows what it takes to win in the A10 and he should get this program moving in the right direction. His rebuilding process will be centered around Meg Hodgson and Alicia Aughton who are poised for breakout seasons.
