Larissa Anderson

  • Larissa Anderson is entering her first season as the head coach of the Hofstra Softball program in 2015. Anderson spent the previous 13 seasons on the Hofstra staff as an assistant, including the last 10 as the associate head coach. She is just the sixth head coach in program history since 1980 and took over for Bill Edwards.
  • Anderson has helped lead Hofstra to 10 NCAA Tournament appearances and 10 Colonial Athletic Association championships during her tenure. As associate head coach, she helped Hofstra win 24 NCAA Tournament games, including eight in the past three seasons. The team also made six appearances in the regional finals.
  • Under Anderson’s tutelage, Hofstra hurlers have won seven of the last eight CAA Pitcher of the Year awards, including four consecutive wins by Olivia Galati from 2010 to 2013. Galati was twice named an NFCA All-America and was the program’s first-ever first-team pick in 2012 after leading Division I with a 0.95 ERA and a 34-7 record. Anderson helped guide Galati to a NCAA-best 40 wins and 22 shutouts in 2013.
  • Working closely with Edwards in all facets of the program, including recruiting, training and game-day preparation, Anderson has helped Hofstra post a 504-216-1 record (.700 winning percentage) since arriving on campus. She has been a part of a staff that has won seven NFCA Regional Coaching Staff of the Year Awards.
