It was her first coaching gig, an exciting new start doing something she loved. It was a job where she could use her knowledge from winning a national championship as a sophomore at UCLA and help teach young people how to succeed.

Shortly after she started coaching, Harrison received a call that threw her plans in a loop.

 The death of assistant coach Charles Fobbs in a pre-season car crash and injuries to their top two pitchers made for an emotional year, as the Spartans finished with a 12-37 record.

 “Was it the worst year of my life? Yeah,” Joseph said. “It’s because, for a lot of reasons. I lost one of my very close friends who happened to be on my staff.  It was incredibly difficult time, and on top of it we didn’t have a great season.”
