The Lipscomb softball program welcomed Ken Hunt to the coaching staff in Feb. 2020.
Hunt comes to Nashville with over 30 years of softball experience as both a coach and a player.
Hunt began his coaching career at High Point Christian Academy in 2005, where he started the program from its inception and compiled a 55-26 record over four years as the head coach.
While at HPCA, Hunt led the team to a win in the only conference tournament that was played through the 2009 season, made regular appearances in the state tournament, and guided two pitchers to All-State selections.
Hunt was hired as an assistant coach at Salem College in 2011, another program he helped guide through its first years of existence.
During his four years at Salem as an assistant and then associate head coach, he was responsible for both pitchers and outfielders, leading a number of All-Conference selections and helping Salem to their first-ever regional appearance. He has also earned the Four Star Master Coach recognition from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
On the field, Hunt has spent the past 33 years playing men’s fast pitch or modified pitch against some of the nation’s best teams, as well as squads from Canada, Venezuela, and Mexico.
Hunt has been a member of both 40-and-over and 45-and-over national championship teams as well as a Men’s Open ASA runner-up. Individually, he was selected as an All-State centerfielder during the last year men’s fastpitch was recognized at the state level in North Carolina.
