The 2010 National Coaching Staff of the Year, UCLA's Kelly Inouye-Perez, Lisa Fernandez, Gina Vecchione and Natasha Watley, were honored at the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Convention last weekend in San Diego.
It is the second time that the UCLA softball staff has been honored as the National Coaching Staff of the Year by the NFCA. In 2004, then head coach Sue Enquist, along with assistants Inouye-Perez, Fernandez and Vecchione were named the CSOY after the Bruins' NCAA title run.
Inouye-Perez has received a pair of coaching awards during her four years as the Bruins' head coach. In 2009, Inouye-Perez led UCLA to the Pac-10 title and was named conference coach of the year.
