Cristina Cobb-Adams will begin her first year as an assistant softball coach after being hired in June 2013.
"I'm really excited that Cristina decided to come down here with me," head coach Tobin Echo-Hawk said. "She brings a ton of knowledge and a competitive attitude that she'll share with the rest of the student-athletes.
Cobb-Adams was an assistant at Portland State under Echo-Hawk during the 2013 season. Prior to Portland State, she had spent the previous five years as an assistant coach at Princeton, her alma mater. Cobb-Adams helped the Tigers to the Ivy League Championship in 2008.
"I'm really excited coach E (Echo-Hawk) wanted to bring me along with her," Cobb-Adams said. "It's very fortunate, sometimes it doesn't always work out that way so I'm glad to be here. I'm excited about the athletic department here; everyone seems to be really nice and very supportive of each other. I can't wait to start working with the girls."
The 2006 graduate of Princeton University was a four-year starter at shortstop for the Tigers. She helped guide Princeton to three Ivy League Championships and a trio of NCAA Regional appearances (2003, 2005 and 2006). She earned All-Ivy League honors twice and was a team captain her senior season.
