UTSA have named their new head softball coach as they promoted Michelle Cheatham to the head position.
The move means that Cheatham will continue with the team she has spent the past nine years serving as an assistant coach with.
Cheatham has had almost every role imaginable within the organization, working with the outfield, serving as first base coach and even serving as travel coordinator.
Darian Blake was under Cheatham's tutelage in the 2012 season allowing her to earn first-team All-WAC honors thanks to a .360 average with 54 hits, 24 runs and three triples.
With Cheatham as the outfield and catcher coach UTSA managed a .970 fielding percentage, putting them 32nd in the country while when the Roadrunners were in Southland she lead Molly Fchtner and Megan Low as freshman of the year awards with both having fielding percentages better than .980.
Cheatham assisted with the batting and under her leadership has managed to lead the league in home runs in three years and in batting average once and no catcher has committed more than five errors in any season.
For UTSA the continuity is a significant boost as they look to move forward in to what will be a challenging year as they begin life in Conference USA.
