Ashley Laramie completed her 3rd season as the head women’s softball coach, assistant sports information director, and game operations manager. In the 2017 season, Laramie coached the team to a 16-20 record while earning a three seed to ensure a spot in the A.I.I. Conference Tournament. Although one win shy of the program record, Laramie has the winningest record from the 2017 season with a win percentage of .444.
A native of Lynn, MA, Laramie competed in 148 contests as a Lasell College Laser. Laramie became one of the Lasers’ all-time leading players in numerous statistical categories. She finished her collegiate career with 128 hits, 78 runs, and 91 RBIs. Of those 128 hits, 22 were doubles, nine were triples, and 21 were home runs. Other offensive stats for Laramie include 32 walks, eight sacrifice hits, five stolen bases, and 231 total bases. Starting as a first baseman, Laramie was converted to a catcher, collecting a total of 784 putouts and 36 assists. As a sophomore in 2009, she was the lone Laser named to the GNAC (Great Northeast Athletic Conference) first team all-conference as a designated player. In 2010, she, again as the only Laser, was named to the second team all-conference, this time as an infielder.
After her stint at Lasell, Laramie went on to earn her Master of Sports Leadership degree from Northeastern University. While at Northeastern, she interned at Florida Gulf Coast University in the facilities and operations department for athletics, acting as a game operations manager to men’s and women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball, and softball. As assistant sports information director, she will be working alongside William Maddock, covering all six Fisher College sports. Her duties will include game-day stats, athletic press releases, and other duties assigned by the sports information director or athletics director.
“It’s exciting to finally sink my feet in an athletic department that isn’t too far from home,” Laramie said. “This is a cookie-cutter job for me—coaching my favorite sport, covering all home games for Fisher.”
Laramie will bring her knowledge and experiences to the athletic department. She has already started working on softball tasks before taking on the team full-swing in the next week, starting with fall ball.
