A recent 2020 graduate of Covenant, Talley is grateful for the opportunity to return to her alma mater.
"I am very excited to be back on the mountain," said Talley. "This community has had a special place in my heart for the past four years, and I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity to continue my journey in athletics with Covenant softball. It definitely will be different stepping into a coaching role, but I'm excited to tackle and learn from the challenges that it will bring."
"I am more than excited to announce Hannah Talley as our new graduate assistant coach," added Rohn. "We are blessed to have her on staff this year. Hannah will bring a great deal of knowledge and help in the bullpen while working with pitchers. Hannah brings a great deal of professionalism, maturity, and a great attitude. I am excited for Hannah to get started with the staff and the team."
In her four years at Covenant, Talley majored in sport administration. She played infield and catcher for the Scots, racking up two USA South All-Sportsmanship awards. During a senior year cut short by COVID-19, she started in eight of the nine games she played. While only getting 12 games in for the 2020 season as a whole, Talley remained a constant presence of maturity and leadership on the team.
Talley looks forward to the opportunity to continue her leadership now as a coach.
"Coming back to the Covenant softball program," continued Talley, "I really hope to express a servant leadership mentality in all aspects of the game, towards not only the coaching staff, but also the players. I look forward to expanding my knowledge of the game, as well as learning under Coach Rohn, Coach Jones, and Coach Brown."
Talley plans on pursuing a master's degree in sport administration through Belhaven University.
