Krista Nugent
Student Assistant Coach

Krista Nugent enters her first season with the University of Southern Indiana softball coaching staff after two seasons as the Screaming Eagles starting shortstop. Nugent assists with day-to-day duties such as practice and monitoring study tables. Her game day management duties include keeping charts and managing the dugout.

“We are excited to have Krista help with our continued success,” USI Head Coach Sue Kunkle said. “She was a standout player for us for the past two years and understands our program and what it takes to win. Krista is very eager to help and assist in every aspect and will be utilized in many ways.”

An Academic All-GLVC performer in 2006, Nugent played in 107 games, making 106 starts, in her two seasons with the Eagles. She helped lead USI to the 2006 NCAA II Tournament as a senior when she hit .238 with two doubles, two triples, and 12 RBIs. Nugent finished her career at USI with a .226 batting average, 40 runs scored, and 22 runs batted in.

Prior to attending USI, Nugent was a two-time All-NJCAA I Region IX performer at Western Nebraska Community College. A native of Hurricane, Utah, Nugent graduated from Hurricane High School where she competed in basketball, softball, and volleyball.

Nugent is pursuing a degree in mathematics.
