Allison Honkofsky, who played and coached at Morehead State, rejoins head coach Holly Bruder on the Lamar staff.
Honkofsky played two years for Morehead State (2007, 2008), appearing in 91 games. She hit .248 with three home runs as a senior, helping Morehead State to a 34-16 record, the best mark in school history. She capped her senior year by receiving the Eagle Award as the university's best all-around athlete.
Prior to Morehead State, Honkofsky played one season at Rhode Island before transferring to North Florida Community College, where she earned second-team all-conference honors at shortstop. Bruder said hiring Honkofsky was an easy decision, citing her passion and excitement for softball.
"She's a tremendous recruiter," Bruder said. "She's also excellent at practices and game situations."
Honkofsky, a native of Hampstead, Md., holds a bachelor's degree in communication from Morehead State and an associate's degree from North Florida Community College.
