Bodeen retires as softball coach
Head Softball Coach Chuck Bodeen will retire from coaching at the conclusion of the 2021 softball season.
Hired in 2005, Bodeen concludes his career as the longest-tenured softball coach in school history — this spring will mark his 16th season at the helm of the Yaks. During his time at YVC, Bodeen has seen 27 of his players advance to 4-year programs, while 32 players have received NWAC All-East Region team honors and another 18 players have been named to the NWAC All-Academic team. Prior to YVC, Bodeen coached baseball for a combined ten years at Selah and Eisenhower high schools and was the athletic
director at Eisenhower High School.
“We are very thankful and appreciative for all of Chuck’s efforts he put into running the softball program at YVC. He was instrumental in providing a consistency to the program, but more importantly impacted the lives of all of his players during his time here,” said Director of Athletics Ray Funk. “We wish Chuck nothing but the best in his well-deserved retirement.”
