Lindsie on returning to coach at Spokane, “I am beyond words for this opportunity and to return to my old stomping grounds. I am very excited and honored to coach this team and grow with them on and off the field every day. I am really looking forward to the things I am going to learn and the knowledge I get to share with the team also on and off the field. This is going to be an amazing year and I am excited to be a Squatch again and be a part of this program."
Athletic Director Ken Burrus on the hire of the former Spokane pitcher “Lindsie will make a great addition to the Sasquatch team. She is a driven competitor and a fine professional. We are excited about having her teach and coach for the Community Colleges of Spokane.”
