Lock Haven University
Lock Haven University is located on the West Branch of the Susquehanna River in the scenic mountains of central Pennsylvania, a few minutes off I-80 (exit 178).

Lock Haven is less than an hour from State College and Williamsport and four hours from New York, Philadelphia, Washington, and Pittsburgh.

LHU’s home field also boasts batting cages, bullpens and a press box positioned just behind home plate.Meet your coaching staff
Kelly Shannon begins her fourth season as head coach of the Lock Haven University softball program.
The 2012 team made a huge late-season run into the post-season led by Shannon. After going, 11-5 in PSAC Central play and claiming the regular season title, Lock Haven advance to the title game of the Atlantic Region Championships. Shannon coached numerous players-of-the-week and guided LHU's Nicole Smith to the 2012 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) NCAA Division II Second Team.
The playoff run marked Lock Haven's ninth straight post-season trip and that is certainly a trend the Lady Eagles' look to keep going in this year.
In 2011 the Lady Eagles made a run for the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) championship falling short in the title game. Shannon coached four All-Conference players including the Freshman of the Year.
The 2010 team earned a spot in the PSAC Central semi-final. Shannon coached two All PSAC Central 2nd team selections.
Prior to being named the head coach, Shannon served as the top assistant coach with The Haven program from 2003 to 2009, where she assisted in all facets of the game including recruiting.
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.
Shannon was named 2009 National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division II Coaching Staff of the Year following Lock Haven’s second National Championship.
The 2006 and 2009 softball squads won the NCAA Division II National Softball Championship.Read Full Bio
Prior to Mansfield she held assistant coaching duties at Division I Bucknell University from 2000 through 2002, focusing her energies on the Bison pitching staff and supervising the team weight training and conditioning efforts. While at Bucknell, she also aided in recruiting, scouting, fundraising and other daily and weekly on and off-the field coaching duties.
A 2000 graduate of Mansfield University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education, Shannon was a two-time NFCA Division II Mid-Atlantic All-Region selection and a 2000 Second Team All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Eastern Division selection. The Mansfield University Spring 2000 Athlete of the Year and 2000 Woman of the Year, Shannon still holds the Mountaineer career (366) and season (125) strikeout records.
Also an outstanding student, she earned NFCA Academic All-America honors twice and was a four-time PSAC Scholar-Athlete. Shannon and her husband Steve have two children, Kimberly and Colin.
