Paige Cassady joined the Liberty softball coaching staff in July of 2013 under first-year head coach Dot Richardson, and will primarily focus on the development of the Lady Flames' pitching staff.
Cassady's most recent coaching experience came in 2013, when she served as pitching coach at Lipscomb under head coach Kristin Ryman. While at Lipscomb, Cassady helped the Lady Bisons post a 35-24 record and qualify for the Atlantic Sun finals. During the 2013 campaign, she instructed Tanner Sanders, who was named to the Atlantic Sun All-Freshman team and Conference Tournament team. She was in charge of the infield defense and baserunning, in addition to responsibilities for travel, camps, team academics and recruiting.
Prior to her time at Lipscomb, Cassady spent two years as a graduate assistant at Louisiana Monroe, where she was the pitching coach under head coach Rosemary Holloway-Hill. In addition to her responsibilities with pitching, she directed the Warhawks' baserunning practice and developed speed and agility workouts.
Cassady has gained extensive experience as a pitching instructor. Since 2005, she has joined her father with Powerline Fastpitch, to provide pitching lessons in and around Orlando, Fla. Several of her students have gone on to pitch collegiately. She also served as an instructor at FIU softball camps and clinics and at a softball camp led by LSU softball head coach Beth Torina.
While working at Louisiana Monroe in Nov. 2012, she served as a keynote speaker on the fundamentals of pitching at an annual Easton Fastpitch southeast conference in Mississippi.
A native of Orlando, Fla., Cassady pitched collegiately for four seasons, beginning with a two-year stint at Presbyterian College from 2007 and 2008. As a freshman in 2007, Cassady won 16 games and was named to the All-SAC second team. Following the 2008 season, she transferred to Florida International, where she was a team captain in 2010.
Cassady graduated with a bachelor's degree in English from Florida International in 2010. She then earned a Master of Arts degree in English from Louisiana Monroe in 2012.
