Miami Dade College’s (MDC) softball head coach Gina De Aguero hit one out of the park for the team, clinching the 2013 Southern Conference Coach of the Year Award.
The Miami native, now in her second year as MDC’s softball coach, steered the Lady Sharks to first place at the Southern Conference Championship.
Coaching for the past 10 years, De Aguero has used her extensive experience to lead her Kendall Campus team to a 28- 12 season, thus far. She and the Lady Sharks took what they learned on the field and competed in the state tournament, the first week of May. In 2012, MDC came in second place in its conference.
MDC has a winning sports history. Its athletic teams have earned a total of 33 NJCAA titles, and many of the college’s baseball players have gone on to excel in the Major Leagues. Most recently, the softball team was the 2010 national champion squad.
