BEAUMONT, Texas – Demi Laney, who spent the last two seasons as pitching coach for the Lamar University softball team while pursuing a master’s degree, has been promoted to full-time assistant coach, LU softball coach Holly Bruder announced.

Bruder, who in five years has turned the fledgling LU program into one that receives national recognition, is happy that she was able to add a second full-time assistant to the staff. Laney joins assistant coach Allison Honkofsky, who has been with the Cardinals since LU revived the softball program in time for the 2013 season.

The Cardinals enjoyed their two most successful seasons since Laney joined the staff. In 2016, the Cardinals set a school record with 35 wins and advanced to the finals of the Southland Conference Tournament. LU followed that up in 2017 with 34 wins, advancing to the title game of the National Invitational Softball Championship.
