My name is Carnesha Collins “Coach Car”,Carnesha Thompson before I got married . I am excited to be the head softball coach for the lady hornets. Softball has been my life since I was 7 years old and started playing travel ball.

I was a part of the program from 2013-2016. In those 4 years we won a conference title and moved on to regionals 2 years in a row. I was nominated my senior year for NCAA women of the year. In 2018 and 2019 I was the head coach of the JV softball team at Lake Wales, then an assistant coach in 2020. I am excited to work with some amazing athletes and get to know you all.
