EPHRAIM—Snow College has named Mikelle Magalogo, who was an assistant coach at College of Southern Idaho (CSI) last year, as the new softball coach.
Magalogo comes to Snow College after a distinguished playing career at Copper Hills High School where she was named top 5A all-region and all-state teams.
She also played at CSI, where she was named to the all-conference first team, as well as at Southern Utah University, where she made the Big Sky all-conference team.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in business management and a master’s degree in interdisciplinary studies at SUU.
As an assistant coach this past year, Magalogo helped lead CSI to an appearance at the NJCAA National Tournament in Yuma, Az.
“I’m really excited for this opportunity to come to Snow College,” said Magalogo. “Being a younger coach will certainly be a challenge, but I feel confident that I can make it a strength and create a winning culture. I am looking forward to implementing a positive, family-oriented environment that helps grow the girls not only as great athletes, but great people as well.”
Magalogo will bring in former Badger player Brooke Brown who played at Snow in 2018-2019 to assist. Savannah Lindsay, a Snow College assistant and interim head coach from last year, will also return to help lead the Badgers.
“I think our coaching staff will be a huge strength in rebuilding the program here at Snow,” said Magalogo. “I am so excited to take Snow softball into its new era with Brooke and Savannah by my side. I will need their help to create a winning culture as we will be setting our expectations higher to compete and win against the teams in the Scenic West Athletic Conference.”
Rob Nielson, Snow athletic director, said of Magalogo, “We like her enthusiasm and her commitment and believe Snow College will be competitive immediately.”
