Coach Grif is a prime example of an all-around athlete who is now an elite coach at Challenge U Softball. She is the epitome of a former standout multi-athlete who brings energy and motivation to any athlete. Coach Grif integrates her personal experience, knowledge, work ethic, and commitment towards her coaching style to build athletes to reach their full potential. 

During her time at Northern Highlands Regional High School, she earned ten varsity letters among volleyball, winter track, and softball. In her high school softball career, she was a standout shortstop known for her superb fielding and aggressive base running. In her final year, her team held a record of 24-4, and she obtained First-Team All-League and All-County selection while winning the Bergen County and League Titles. Her talent did not evaporate while competing in winter track and volleyball. She earned League, County, and Sectional Championships while securing First-Team All-League, and Honorable-Mention All-County and All-State laurels in track, and First-Team All-League volleyball senior.

Coach Grif persisted in being a multi-sport athlete in her NCAA career at William Paterson University. Within five years, she competed in four sports, earning all-conference honors in three, all-regional in two, and was drafted to compete competitively at the professional softball level. Coach Grif excelled as a dual-sport athlete during her time as an undergraduate student at William Paterson University, earning four letters on the Pioneers’ volleyball and softball teams.

 

She was a two-time member of the National Fastpitch Coaches Association All-Region First and Second Team, ECAC All-Metro First Team, two-time All-NJAC First Team and Player of the Week honors, and 2019 WPU Woman of the Year recipient. She was a potent offensive threat as a third baseman for the Pioneers in games. She is on William Paterson’s all-time charts, ranked second in triples (20), third in home runs with two as grand slams (13), fifth in batting average (.380), and sixth in RBIs (96), In 2017, she held the NCAA Division III highest slugging percentage of 1.066 during the regular season, the same year the Pioneers reached the NCAA regionals tournament.

 

Once she retired her softball jersey, she was declared for the 2019 American Softball Association (ASBA) Draft, a Professional Softball Club dedicated to building and developing the professional platform for women in sports. Coach Grif’s accolades are a testament to the woman that she is; determined, goal-oriented, and purposeful. 

Coach Grif was a significant contributor to the Pioneer’s volleyball program, appearing four times in WP’s All-Time Record Book. She did not stop competing once she walked the stage at graduation. Now working towards her masters in Industrial-Organizational Psychology, she continues to compete on the Red Hawk’s Cross Country and Track and Field teams. She earned Honorable Mention All-Regional and All-NJAC in shot put while receiving Rookie of the Week with her outstanding performance in the pentathlon. 

Coach Grif’s is a woman of confidence and strength that she desires to instill into her athletes. Be prepared to have a coach that gives her all to her athletes!
