Beloit, WI – Megan Salm, a 2015 Beloit College graduate and a four-year letterwinner for the Buccaneer Softball team, is back in the dugout for the Bucs as the 2016 season begins, coaching the pitchers as well as handling social media for the program.
A four-year starter for the Bucs from 2012-2015 and three-year team captain under current head coach Kim Zarling, Salm logged over 260 innings on the mound and split the majority of her remaining time between first and third base. Following her junior season, she was named to the All-Midwest Conference team after posting a .338 batting average. She earned the Athletic Department’s Joe Kobylka Sportsmanship Award as well as The Donald “Red” Janssen which recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of junior student-athletes, as voted by the head coaches in the Buccaneer Athletic Department.
“We’re really excited to have Megan on the staff,” said Zarling. “With her four years of experience she’ll definitely have an impact on the team, which has several young players.”
A native of Lake Forest, Illinois, Salm received her degree in Creative Writing from Beloit College in May of 2015. In addition to her coaching duties, she is working in Beloit College’s Sports Information office alongside Sports Information Director Terry Owens.
The team opens the 2016 season on Sunday, March 6, at the Rebel Spring Games in Kissimmee, Florida.
