GREENVILLE, Ill. -- The Greenville College softball program will enter their 2013-14 season with a new head coach.  Jamie Thanepohn, currently the freshman and sophomore softball coach and high school math teacher at Morton High School in Illinois, will replace Tenequa Martin as GC's head softball coach and senior women's administrator.  Martin departed Greenville to become head softball coach at Malone University.

Thanepohn attended Illinois Wesleyan University where she earned her bachelor's degree in 2004 in math education.  She later completed a master's degree in teaching and leadership at Saint Xavier University.
"Jamie was a strong contributor to the local FCA, and she has a passion for the game of softball," said athletic director Doug Faulkner.  "The combination of high school coaching experience, on field accomplishments as a player for a strong program, and a desire to effectively integrate faith into her coaching makes Jamie a great fit with our college and athletic department."
While at IWU, Thanepohn was a successful student-athlete in their softball program, playing on three CCIW conference championship winning teams.  At IWU, she holds the single season record for doubles and was twice a member of the all-conference team.  She was also honored as an all-region player.
Playing in three NCAA tournaments, her team achieved a third place trophy in 2003.  She was also selected to the NCAA World Series all-tournament team.
Thanepohn will assume the position immediately.
