The George Washington University softball program has added Holly Farris to its coaching staff for the 2012 season. Farris will serve as an assistant coach under second-year head coach Stacey Schramm.

Farris comes to GW after a four-year collegiate career as a right fielder with Texas A&M's softball program from 2005-09. During her senior season with the Aggies, Farris was named to the Louisville Slugger/National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA) Division I All-Central Region Team and was awarded Player of the Week accolades by USA Softball and Louisville Slugger/NFCA.

In 2008, Farris led the Aggies to their first Women's College World Series appearance since 1987. That same year, she was named a Verizon Scholar-Athlete and landed spots on the Big 12 Conference's All-Conference, All-Tournament and All-Academic First Teams.

Farris still remains part of the Texas A&M record book as she ranks seventh on the all-time home runs list with 24 during her career.

For the past year, Farris has served as a graduate assistant in Texas A&M's Division of Sport Management. She is currently working toward her master's degree in sport management.
