Missouri State University announced the hiring of Gabby Gomez Sosa as assistant field hockey coach. She is a 2005 Missouri State graduate and returns to her alma mater for her first foray into field hockey coaching.
"We are extremely excited to have Gabby back with the Missouri State University family," said head coach Dawn Callahan. "She was a tremendous asset as a player and she will make a seamless transition to coaching."
When Gomez Sosa completed her playing career in 2004, she was one of the most highly-decorated field hockey athletes in school history. She was on the NorPac All-Conference team all four seasons, and her five goals and two assists in 13 games as a freshman were good enough to win the conference’s Rookie of the Year Award in 2001. From 2002-04, she was named to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association All-West Region team, and her senior season she became the first Bear honored on the NFHCA All-America team (third team).
