Lock Haven finished the 2014 season 19-26 overall and the Bald Eagles were 12-16 in PSAC East play. LHU went a sensational 12-5 over the last 17 games of the season, as it did everything it could to rally down the stretch for a playoff spot.

Shannon was LHU’s primary pitching coach and a big reason behind the success of Kristin Erb, who capped off her career as one of the most dominating pitchers NCAA softball has ever seen, as Erb shattered numerous school, conference and NCAA records.

Taught My Daughter More Softball & Being A Young Lady

"I cannot put into words the experience my daughter gained from going to the camp. She not only learned skills in softball but how to be a better young lady. The morals and values the staff brought to the camp were extraordinary. We looked at sending her to another camp and decided on the NIKE Camp for convenience and I am so glad we did. She was going to be a day camper but when we got there she saw some friends and we were able to change her to be an overnight camper. I will highly recommend this camp to anyone who is interested in gaining skills and personal growth. We look forward to next year!!"
