Emily Smith joined the Catawba Softball Program as an assistant coach in the fall of 2019. She will work primarily with the team’s pitching staff. She is a 2014 Catawba graduate, earning a degree in exercise science.
Smith, formerly Emily Brooke Huneycutt, was a four-year letterman for the Indians softball program as a pitcher from 2011-14. She garnered an All-South Atlantic Conference selection as a freshman in 2011 and finished her collegiate career with 38 pitching victories (fifth-most in program history). She posted a 2.43 career ERA in the circle (sixth-best in program history) and her 12 shutouts stand third all-time. During her sophomore season in 2012, Smith helped Catawba earn its first appearance in the NCAA regionals.
The Stanly County native spent the 2017-19 seasons as pitching coach at West Stanly High School and most recently helped the Colts to a 2A state championship in 2019. While at West Stanly, Smith worked the last two years with the 2019 North Carolina Gatorade Player of the Year, Jordan Hatch. West Stanly Softball posted a 53-4 record over the last two seasons, and the team’s pitching staff accumulated a 0.79 combined ERA during that time.
Prior to her collegiate playing career with the Indians, Smith was an All-State and All-District standout at West Stanly. A four-year varsity player, the Colts won 85 games during her high school playing career.
Smith and her husband, Daniel, currently reside in Oakboro.
