Samantha Honeycutt | Assistant Coach
Samantha Honeycutt, a Pleasant Hill, Mo. native, was hired in August of 2019 to serve as the assistant coach for Kansas City Softball.
"She is the right person for Kansas City Softball," said newly appointed head coach Kerry Shaw. "She is a lifelong KC area player and coach with a very successful collegiate coaching resume."
Prior to the new role, Honeycutt served as the head softball coach for Avila University. During her four years as head coach, she racked up a 143-81 record with 4 straight 30+ win seasons. She was the first coach in program history to average more than 20 victories per season through her first four years with the program. Also during her time at Avila, she led the team to two NAIA world series opening round appearances, two conference tournament titles, and 16 All-Conference player selections.
A former standout first baseman and pitcher at the NCAA Division I level, Honeycutt played for the Missouri Tigers in 2003 and 2004, then finished her career at Missouri State playing for the Bears' 2005 and 2006 squads. She was named the MVC Player of the Year in her senior season in 2006, becoming just the third player in school history to earn that award. Along with receiving the league’s player of the year award and first-team all-conference recognition, she was also named to the MVC Scholar Athletes first-team and ESPN the Magazine/CoSIDA All-District VII team.
