IPFW head softball coach Germaine Fairchild announced the hiring of Chelsea Cantillo and Kelley Kaneshiro to her staff. Cantillo and Kaneshiro previously worked together at Utah State where Cantillo took her first coaching position while Kaneshiro was a junior on the team.
Cantillo spent the 2014 season on the
staff at Army in West Point, New York, where she helped the Black
Knights earn the fourth seed in the Patriot League Tournament en route
to posting 23 wins. She helped guide two members of the squad to earn
All-NFCA (National Fastpitch Coaches Association) honors, including a
first-team selection. Cantillo worked primarily with the infield during
her stints at Army and Utah State.
Kaneshiro comes to IPFW after most recently
being employed by the City of Boise (Idaho) working with at-risk youth.
During her time in Boise, Kaneshiro also worked for the local YMCA as
the lead membership representative.
