Denison head softball coach Tiffany Ozbun has announced the hiring of Amanda Fazio as assistant softball coach for the 2017 season.
Fazio comes to Denison after a four-year playing career at Division I Bucknell University.

She was also a College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-American, a four-time National Fastpitch College Association (NFCA) All-American Scholar Athlete and the 2016 Patriot League Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
As a senior, Fazio led the Patriot League with a .347 batting average and a 1.81 earned run average. She left Bucknell the career record holder in strikeouts as well as setting records for single-season stolen bases (26), wins (19) and strikeouts (164).
Fazio graduated Magna cum laude from Bucknell in 2016 with a B.A. in environmental studies.
