Killian Roessner begins her first season as a Redhawk assistant. She will assume duties as the team's pitching and catchers coach as well as serve as the team's recruiting coordinator and oversee the off-season conditioning program.

She comes to Cape Girardeau after a two-year stint at the University of Memphis, where she served as an assistant coach for the Tigers.

A four-year starter with the LSU Tigers from 2005-08, Roessner was named a 2007 NFCA First-Team All-American. She finished her collegiate career batting .288 with 21 home runs, 109 RBI and 64 runs scored. The Manasquan, New Jersey, native started 214 of her 236 games played.

This past summer, Roessner was an assistant coach for the Newtown Rock Gold summer club team. That team would go on to a ninth place finish at 18U Gold Nationals.
