ALLISON HONKOFSKY | ASSISTANT COACH
Allison Honkofsky, who played for and coached with Lamar University head coach Holly Bruder at Morehead State, enters her fourth season as Bruder’s top assistant at LU.
Honkofsky, who was Bruder’s first hire at LU, works with the infielders and coordinates LU’s recruiting efforts.
Her efforts have helped Lamar develop into a solid Southland Conference program in just three seasons, as the Lady Cardinals placed third at the Southland Conference Tournament in 2015.
Honkofsky played two years for Morehead State (2007, 2008), appearing in 91 games. She hit .248 with three home runs as a senior, helping Morehead State to a 34-16 record, the best mark in school history. She capped her senior year by receiving the Eagle Award as the university's best all-around athlete.
Prior to Morehead State, Honkofsky played one season at Rhode Island before transferring to North Florida Community College, where she earned second-team all-conference honors at shortstop. Bruder said hiring Honkofsky was an easy decision, citing her passion and excitement for softball.
"She's a tremendous recruiter," Bruder said. "She's also excellent at practices and game situations."
Honkofsky, a native of Hampstead, Md., holds a bachelor's degree in communication from Morehead State and an associate's degree from North Florida Community College.
