BRITTANY GOMEZ | GRADUATE ASSISTANT COACH
The 2017 season is Brittany Gomez’s first year as the Montana softball program’s graduate assistant coach. Gomez, one of the top hitters in Big 12 Conference history, wrapped up her collegiate playing career at Iowa State following the 2016 season.
Gomez, from New Braunfels, Texas, was a freshman for the Cyclones in 2013, the final season on ISU’s coaching staff for Jamie Pinkerton before he accepted the head coaching position at Montana.
Gomez would become the first player in Iowa State softball history to four times be named All-Big 12. She was named second-team All-Big 12 as a freshman, sophomore and junior as an outfielder and first-team all-league as a senior after shifting to the infield and batting .401.
Gomez, who started all 219 of Iowa State’s games from 2013-16, concluded her career ranked third in Big 12 history in hits (297) and tied for fifth in stolen bases (110). She is the ISU leader in career hits, batting average (.396), steals and runs scored (165).
In the summer of 2015, Gomez played for the U.S. Women’s Baseball national team that won gold at the Pan American Games in Toronto. She was drafted 28th overall in the spring of 2016 by the Pennsylvania Rebellion of the six-team National Pro Fastpitch softball league.
