Angie Kenney begins her first season as Century College head softball coach. She returns to Minnesota,
her birthplace, excited to continue the success she has enjoyed at previous coaching stops.
Kenney most recently coached softball for six seasons (2006-2011) at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin,
a NCAA Division II program. She began a three-year stint as assistant coach in 2006. Promoted to head coach in 2009,
Kenney earned co-Heartland Conference Coach of the Year honors one season later as her team set a program record
with 18 victories. The Falcons tied the mark in 2011.
After taking the reins of the program, she raised the conference winning percentage almost .300 points and the
overall winning percentage by .200 points. The Falcons qualified for the postseason twice under Kenney (2009, 2010)
after a last-place conference finish in 2008.
She coached 10 All-Heartland Conference players as well as two newcomers of the year. Her players also succeeded
in the classroom, witnessed by 12 academic all-conference performers.
Prior to her job at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin, Kenney served as an assistant coach for three
seasons (2003-05) at Odessa College in Texas. The Wranglers improved in victories each season, culminating with
a 52-23 record in 2005 and a third-place finish in the NJCAA Division I national tournament.
With Kenney’s assistance, Odessa produced two All-American, eight all-region and 16 all-conference players.
As a player, Kenney spent three seasons at the University of Utah, where she twice earned academic all-conference
and made the Dean’s List. Utah made two NCAA Division I regional tournament appearances. Kenney started her
post-secondary softball career as an outfielder at Phoenix College, earning first-team NJCAA All-American honors
in 1999 and setting school records in hits, runs scored and stolen bases.
Kenney earned her bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science from Utah and completed her master’s degree
in kinesiology at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin.
Originally from St. Paul, Minn., Kenney played two seasons at Johnson High School.
