DANVILLE, Ind. - Jennifer Chasteen, who recently finished a solid pitching career at Butler, was named head softball coach at Danville High School, just west of Indianapolis.
“Coach Chasteen’s success during her playing career at Butler and Avon speaks for itself, and we are thrilled to have someone with her background on board. Our student-athletes have a wonderful opportunity to learn from the experiences she had playing at the Division I level,” said Danville's athletic director Jon Regashus.
A native of nearby Avon, Ind., Chasteen was named first team All-State as a junior in 2005 and again as a senior in 2006 before coming to Butler.
Chasteen finished her Butler career with a 36-21 record and a career 2.68 ERA. She totaled 15 complete games and five shutouts while striking out 191 and walking 53. As a senior in 2011, she posted an 11-6 record and 1.49 ERA and helped the Bulldogs to the league tournament championship game.
Chasteen has also worked as a member of the coaching staff of the Indiana Shockwaves, a summer travel softball team, for the past three years.
“I am very excited to be a part of Danville softball, and am looking forward to having the opportunity to work with such a great group of people,” Chasteen said. “I want to help rebuild the program from the ground up and bring Danville softball to its full potential.”
