Amy ReCouper-Servi has been named an assistant coach for the University of Louisville softball team. Her duties will include recruiting and working with the defense and catchers according to head coach Sandy Pearsall.
“I’m very excited to have Amy on staff with us in this position,” said Pearsall. “She was a top-level player and she also brings to the table experience as a head coach and an assistant coach. After working with us as a volunteer coach and then as our director of operations, her knowledge of our team is great. She brings lot of energy to the game and I’m looking forward to what she can do in this role.”
This marks ReCouper-Servi’s third season with Louisville. She joined the Cardinals in 2015 as a volunteer coach and served as director of softball operations in 2016. During her time on staff, UofL has posted a 65-36 overall record and made two NCAA Regional appearances.
ReCouper-Servi has managed several aspects of Louisville softball over the past two years. As the director of softball operations, her duties included making travel arrangements, scheduling, assisting with marketing and community as well as alumni relations and administrative duties such as organizing camps and clinics during the 2015-16 season.
While serving as UofL’s volunteer assistant coach in the 2014-15 season, she assisted with practice and game preparation while working with catchers. In her first year with the Cardinals, Louisville made an NCAA regional appearance and pitcher/first baseman Maryssa Becker was named an NFCA All-Southeast selection.
“I’ve always wanted to be part of Louisville softball on this level,” said ReCouper-Servi. “For me to have had the opportunity to grow and learn so much about the dynamics of our program and our athletic department over the last two years will make this transition back to the field a seamless one. Sandy Pearsall is my mentor and I’m stoked about being able to coach alongside her.”
ReCouper-Servi joined the Cardinals after serving as an assistant coach at Santa Clara University in the 2014 season. In the Broncos’ inaugural year in the West Coast Conference, she helped the team improve in nearly every offensive category. Also in 2014, four players earned all-conference honors for the first time in program history.
Prior to her stint at Santa Clara, ReCouper-Servi was the head coach at Monterey Peninsula College from 2008-13. While there, she quickly and successfully rebuilt the program and became the winningest coach in program history after the team made back-to-back post season appearances in 2012 and 2013. During her time at Monterey Peninsula, she produced two All-Americans, three all-state and all-NorCal players, and 13 all-conference honorees.
ReCouper-Servi, who played for Pearsall at Colorado State from 1992-96, was an all-Western Athletic Conference selection as a catcher/third baseman. As a true freshman, she was named to the 1992 WAC All-Tournament team and earned WAC First Team All-Conference as a senior in 1996.
The 1996 graduate of Colorado State University majored in Political Science with a minor in Economics. She earned her MBA in finance from Webster University in 2005.
