SOFTBALL: Maggie Livreri will join the coaching staff, Ute head coach Amy Hogue announced.
Livreri was previously an assistant coach at UNLV during the 2010 season working primarily with the Rebel infielders, catchers and hitters after spending the 2007 and 2008 campaigns as a volunteer assistant coach. The Rebels went 91-59 with Livreri on the bench, including an NCAA Tournament appearance in 2009.
The Las Vegas native started her collegiate playing career at Colorado State University-Pueblo before transferring to UNLV for the 2005 and '06 seasons.
Despite only playing her junior and senior seasons with the Rebels, Livreri made a significant impact on the program. She finished ninth in the school record books in career RBI (75) and eighth in career walks (60). In UNLV's single-season record book, Livreri is fourth in walks with 31 in 2006, eighth in doubles with 12 in 2006, eighth in RBI with 38 in 2006 and tied for 10th in most games played with 63 in 2005.
Livreri was selected to the Mountain West Conference's All-Tournament and All-Conference Teams in 2005. She played one season in the Italian Professional League for Nuoro after completing her intercollegiate playing career.
Livreri earned a bachelor's degree from UNLV in University Studies in 2006 and obtained her Master's in Higher Education Leadership in 2008.
