Magner Named Interim ISU Softball Head Coach


Assistant coach Tori Magner has been named the interim head coach for the Indiana State softball program, Director of Athletics Sherard Clinkscales announced Friday.
“We are very supportive of Tori in this role, and we are going to rally around her and the staff to support our student-athletes,” Clinkscales said. “We’re optimistic that her leadership will lead us in the right direction and have a positive impact on the team.”
Magner played at both IUPUI and Indiana Wesleyan during her collegiate career, which included two national tournament appearances at IWU. Her senior season she was part of a Wildcat team that went 44-18 overall and 26-10 in conference, the most successful season in school history. At the national tournament, Wesleyan took down No. 2 seed Davenport Michigan and No. 3 seed Olivet Nazarene.
Magner’s coaching credentials prior to Indiana State include two seasons at Plainfield High School (where she went 46-9 and won a sectional title) and six summers with the 18U travel Indiana Stingers team.
Joining Magner on staff in a volunteer assistant capacity is Brittney Fisher, who helped as co-head coach of the Indiana Stingers with Magner for six seasons. Fisher is an ASA/ACE Level 4 certified coach and an NFCA two-star master’s coach, and has been coaching around Indiana for more than 10 years.
Fisher played at Bethel College, where she earned seven different All-American awards as a catcher and was named the 2010 NFCA/NAIA Catcher of the Year.
