LAKE CHARLES — McNeese head softball coach James Landreneau has announced the promotion of Shellie Landry to Associate Head Coach.

Landry, a native of Broussard, Louisiana, is in her fourth season with the Cowgirls, serving the previous three years as an assistant coach.

“I’m excited to promote coach Landry to Associate Head Coach,” said Landreneau. “She has definitely earned this right. Her loyalty and dedication to the program has been outstanding. Not only is she invested in our program, but she is also heavily invested in our kids. Being able to keep her as part of the program and the community is a huge step for not only McNeese but for our athletics department as well.”

Landry handles all the Cowgirls’ hitting, outfield play and day-to-day operations, also serves as the recruiting coordinator.

In three seasons with the Cowgirls, Landry has been part of two NCAA Tournament appearances, two Southland Conference Tournament titles and one SLC regular season title while helping the Cowgirls’ defense to above a .960 fielding percent in each of the last three years.

An All-American in her playing days at UL-Lafayette (2013-16), Landry was also a two-time NFCA All-Region, four-time All-Sun Belt and three-time All-Louisiana selection.

“I’m humbled and honored for the promotion,” said Landry. “It says a lot when you have a boss that your goals, values, and morals align. It’s definitely a family for me and the pace and track we are on along with the goals and vision coach James has for the program on a personal and softball level is obviously what I align with as well. I’m just honored and humbled to continue the success and future of this program.”
