about us

ONE Softball began with an idea. Following her retirement from UCLA, Sue Enquist spent years traveling around the country speaking to softball families. She saw the decline in female sport participation, how difficult it was for families to navigate their softball journey and she wanted to bring the community together. In the last few years she assembled a team of experts to collaborate and bring this vision to life.

SUE ENQUIST

Former UCLA head coach and 11-time National Champion, Sue Enquist, is the founder of ONE Softball, LLC. Enquist’s 27-year coaching career coupled with her playing career instilled in her a passion for the game that she still has today.

In addition to ONE Softball, Enquist is the owner of Bruwin Enterprises and Champions Festival, LLC and has been inducted into six Hall of Fames including UCLA, the USA Softball Hall of Fame and the National Fastpitch Coaches Association. Daughter of a chemical engineer and World War II veteran and a nurse, she has a passion for surfing daily and helping the softball community be the best it can be.

    

KRIS HERMAN

With over 30 years of head coaching experience, more than 600 wins, nine conference championships, three world series appearances, Kris Herman brings her passion and love of the game to Williams College and the entire softball community.

In addition to being the Ephs’ coach, Herman is also an assistant athletics director at Williams and the owner of GT3 Coaching.  In both positions she gets to practice her passion for mentoring others. Not only a fun aunt, Herman is also a golf addict, and you can find her on the course. Herman credits her parents for raising her with a “do anything” approach, helping her develop a desire to help grow kids and teams and to build systems.

    

AMANDA CARMICHAEL

Whether she’s coaching athletes or CEOs, she always has growth and development in mind. She credits competitive sports for shaping who she is today, and loves to create opportunity for others.

Amanda started her coaching career at UCLA where her teams captured 31 team titles, 3 Pac-10 team titles, 4 Regional team titles and a Women’s NCAA Championship in 2004. She then transitioned into the technology space, where she coached over 2,500 college coaches in all sports on the best tools for recruiting communications. In the past few years Amanda has expanded her work to help emerging companies raise capital, develop systems, and manage growth.

Amanda has a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Cal State University, Northridge and a Master’s of Sports Administration from the Ohio University. She currently serves on the Executive Board of Women In Sports and Events (WISE) Los Angeles, and is the National Chair for the WISE Within mentoring program.

  

RACHEL HANSON

Rachel is currently the head softball coach at Stanford University and has over a decade of head coaching experience at both the Division I and III levels. Having coached multiple player, pitcher and rookie of the year athletes, Hanson has served as the leader of multiple teams that have consistently set program records. The oldest of four siblings, Hanson credits her family with instilling a value system of never settling for anything less than your best. That mentality is what inspires her passion for building programs and people, and equipping them for sustained excellence. When not on the softball field, you might find her hiking or working to create the perfect cup of coffee.

HILLARY NELSON

Hillary graduated from Arizona State University in 2012 and continued her softball career playing in the National Pro Fastpitch League and oversees in the Japan League. Having won a National Championship at ASU in 2011, Nelson has continued to stay involved with the game she loves and is now a partnership manager at the Positive Coaching Alliance–Phoenix. Wife of Glen, Nelson calls herself a dreamer, doer and most importantly, a donut connoisseur.
