Kristen Hunt was named the Rutgers University-Newark softball coach on July 27, 2015.
In Hunt's first season at Rutgers-Newark, she led the Scarlet-Raiders to the programs first winning season in school history!
Hunt comes to Newark after time at Division I Central Connecticut State University, Division II University of Bridgeport and Division III Wheaton College.
Hunt graduated from Wheaton (Mass.) in May of 2011 and was an NFCA All-Region pick that same season. A two-year team captain and 2011 all-conference performer, Hunt immediately headed to Bridgeport in her home state as an assistant coach (2011-2014). As a member of the Knights staff, she had her hands in all aspects of the program, developing a strength and conditioning program, planning and running individual practices and much more.
After three seasons at UB, Hunt moved on to CCSU in January of 2014 and helped guide the Blue Devils to the 2015 Northeast Conference title and a berth in the NCAA Tournament. While at Central, Hunt played a major role in all recruiting, travel, budgeting, team academic performance, community service, university and NCAA compliance, etc. During that time, the Blue Devils compiled an overall record of 60-30 and a winning percentage of .667, making deep postseason runs in both campaigns.
The Scarlet Raiders had a solid 2014 season that featured 18 wins, including closing the season by winning nine of their final 12 outings.
Purcell knows the New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) well after a decorated four-year career at TCNJ. Purcell competed in 151 games, starting 150, as a catcher and utility player while earning All-NJAC honors each of her four seasons. She was an honorable mention in 2013, first-team as a sophomore, second-team as a junior, and she capped her career with another first-team All-NJAC award. Purcell was a career .275 hitter who racked up 122 hits and 53 RBI while fielding her position at .984% clip.
The Lions made the NCAA Tournament following Purcell's rookie year, and while serving as a team captain in 2016, her squad made it back to the NCAA Tournament as she earned NCAA Regional Tournament Team honors.
As a coach, Purcell has led the NJ Pride Softball 18u Gold team in the summer of 2016 and the NJ Pride Softball 18u Elite team in 2015. She has also been an instructor at the Lady Lions Sports Camp in Caldwell, N.J. since 2009 where she coaches and mentors young student-athletes on the skills, techniques, and competitive strategies necessary for individual and team achievement. In addition, Purcell has worked as a softball coach at the 4 Real Baseball and Softball Camps, TCNJ Softball Winter Clinic, Nike Softball Camp, and Long Valley Girls' Softball Association Summer Softball Camp.
