Mustangs hire Culotta as softball coach


Former UMBC standout and assistant coach Julia Culotta has been hired as the head coach of the Stevenson softball team for the 2017 season. Former Mustangs coach Joey Lye was hired to head MACC conference rival Lebanon Valley in June, creating the opening. Culotta served five seasons under long-time Retriever head coach Joe French at her alma mater.

While at UMBC, Culotta helped in revitalizing the program, working mostly with the team’s hitting and outfielders. During her first years at UMBC she help develop players to 19 All-Conference honors, in addition to Taylor Hall being named the America East Co-Rookie of the Year in 2012.

UMBC hit .273 as a team last year. In 2015 the Retrievers posted a .289 batting average, their highest since 2007 and a .378 on-base percentage, their highest since 2006.

The Retrievers went to the America East Championships each of the past two years.

Culotta also worked numerous sophomore camps at UMBC, TNT, Towson and the Florida Rising Star.

Stevenson went 17-26 last season with an even conference record and appeared in the MACC playoffs.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
