Cary named softball coach at Bethany

By Steve Sell
June 26, 2019

LINDSBORG — Gregory Cary is moving halfway across the country to become the new head softball coach at Bethany College.

Cary comes from State University of New York Oneonta, where he was an assistant since 2018.

Former softball coach Laura Moreno has been elevated to interim Athletic Director.

"The Swedes softball program has a tradition of excellence in the classroom and on the field. I believe coach Cary has the right tools and experiences to continue that excellence," Bethany College President William Jones said in a release. "In my conversations with him, he spoke of the uniqueness of the Bethany campus and the Lindsborg communities. I know he will be a good fit for both."  

Cary earlier was head softball coach at Brooklyn College in Brooklyn, N.Y. from August 2017-August 2018. 

For the 2016 season, Cary was the assistant softball coach at Alderson Broaddus University in Philippi, W.Va. Before that, Cary was for two seasons  the head softball coach for Monroe College in Rochelle, N.Y.

"We are thrilled to welcome Gregory Cary as our new head softball coach," Moreno said in the release. "Coach Cary's energy, enthusiasm and positive attitude and demeanor stood out from the beginning, and were strongly evident throughout the entire hiring process. His work ethic, love for the game of softball, and philosophy of developing the overall student-athlete will provide an immediate benefit for Swedes softball. Coach Cary is a great fit for Bethany College and we are excited to have him join the Swedes family!"

He earned an Associates of Arts degree in communication from State University of New York at Corning Community in May 2010 before obtaining his Bachelors of Arts degree in communications from State University of New York at Purchase College in May 2014.

"I am very excited to have the opportunity to lead the Bethany College softball program," Cary said. "I want to thank President Jones, Interim Athletics Director Laura Moreno and the search committee for allowing me this opportunity. I look forward to being a part of the Bethany College community and helping to instill the values of the college into current and future student athletes. An opportunity of this magnitude is what I've striving for over the past several years."
