Courtney Tucker enters her seventh season as assistant softball coach at North Carolina Wesleyan College. A four-year letterwinner for the Bishops from 2004-2007, Tucker rejoined her alma mater on the field after serving one year as an Admissions Counselor for the College.
Tucker enjoyed a stellar collegiate career at North Carolina Wesleyan and was named the Battling Bishops' 2006-2007 Female Athlete of the Year. A three-time USA South All-Conference performer at first base, she twice garnered First Team accolades in 2006 and 2007, as well as All-Region and NCCSIA All-State recognition. Tucker was also a two-time Most Valuable Player for head coach John Brackett, and she still holds NCWC program records for career RBIs with 124 and career putouts with 976.
After graduating from North Carolina Wesleyan in 2007 with degrees in Criminal Justice and Psychology, Tucker took her talents overseas to Germany and Holland as a member of the World Sport International Stars Softball Club. Upon returning to the States, she began pursuing her master's degree at Averett University, where she also served as an assistant softball coach for one season.
The summer of 2008 saw Tucker again travel overseas with the Stars Softball Club, this time playing in Paris and Holland. That same fall, she returned to her alma mater as an Admissions Counselor while continuing her master's work in Management Leadership at Liberty University, a degree she completed in March of 2011.
Tucker made the move over to Athletics as Brackett's assistant in January of 2010. In addition to her coaching duties, she coordinates compliance issues and eligibility input for all Battling Bishop student-athletes. The Chesterfield, Virginia native now resides in Nashville.
