Staff and Instructors Staffing involves NIU eighth year head coach Christina Sutcliffe, her staff, and members of the 2019-2020 softball team. In 2019, Sutcliffe led the Huskies to her seventh consecutive appearance in the Mid-American Conference Tournament, earning a four seed. The Huskies finished the 2019 season with one Academic All-America selection, one All-Great Lakes Region honoree, five All-MAC selections, two All-Freshman team honorees, one MAC Championship All-Tournament Team selection, one CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-District honoree, eight Academic All-MAC players, and three MAC President's Award recipients. The Huskies etched their place in NIU record books, as Alex Frenz tossed the first perfect game since 1995, Katie Keller broke the NIU record for doubles in a season, doubles in a game, and runs scored in a game, and Katie Lamich broke the NIU record for stolen bases in a game. Additionally, Keller became the first freshman in NIU history to be named First Team All-Great Lakes Region and went on to be honored as a NFCA Top 25 Freshman, a first for NIU as well as the Mid-American Conference.

Additional Information The NIU softball fall elite camps are designed with the elite softball athlete in mind and will run campers through what a practice looks like at the Division I level. The morning session will be filled with drills and skills to enhance the campers' offensive and defensive game. During the afternoon, campers have the chance to showcase those skills in games at Mary M. Bell field, the home of the Huskies, on teams coached by current NIU student-athletes. We limit each elite camp to a maximum of 48 campers (12 pitchers, 9 catchers, and 27 position players) which allows us to provide feedback and work closely with each camper in attendance.
