Pilgrim named LWC Softball Head Coach
Callum Pilgrim has been named the eighth head coach in the history of Lindsey Wilson softball, Athletics Director Willis Pooler announced on Wednesday.
"I am honored to be named the Head Coach at Lindsey Wilson College," Pilgrim said. "My time as a Blue Raider has had a powerful impact both as a professional and a student-athlete. It is my vision to create a positive culture and environment which will leave a lasting impact on current and future members of the program. LWC holds such a special place in my heart, and I can't wait to be back in Columbia and get started."
Pilgrim graduated from Lindsey Wilson College in 2019, earning her degree in Physical Education & Health. With the Blue Raiders, she had a career .384 batting average and a .452 on-base percentage with 60 doubles, six triples, and 25 home runs in four seasons.
The opportunity to bring Callum back to Lindsey Wilson was too good to pass up. She is one of the best people I know and has an incredible passion for Lindsey Wilson and the sport of softball," Lindsey Wilson Athletics Director Willis Pooler said. "She has a clear understanding of our mission and the expectations of our program and student-athletes. I have no doubt she will work tirelessly to assist our student-athletes in becoming the best version of themselves in all facets of their lives. I'm excited to work with her and to see our program flourish under her leadership."
Pilgrim's 209 hits, 212 runs, 60 doubles, and 205 stolen bases are all LWC program records. She sits inside the top 10 of the program record book in 17 different statistical categories.
She currently competes professionally as a part of the Canadian Women's National Team. She has been competing with the Canadian National Team in some form since 2015 when she was on the Junior Women's National Team for the 2015 Junior Women's Softball World Championship in Oklahoma City.
The Abbotsford, British Columbia native played as part of the Canada Elite Team at the 2017 and 2018 Canada Cup International Softball Championship, and debuted with the Women's National Team as part of Team Canada at the 2019 Canada Cup. She has also played at the professional level with the Canadian Wild of Southern Illinois in the National Pro Fastpitch League.
