GRAND FORKS, N.D. – University of North Dakota softball head coach Jordan Stevens announced Friday the hiring of Tina Andreana to the coaching staff for the 2017 season.
“Tina Andreana has the background and pitching acumen that will help our pitching staff continue to improve,” Stevens said. “She is a valuable addition to our staff and I look forward to watching our pitchers succeed under her guidance.”
Andreana comes to North Dakota after spending two years as a graduate assistant and the pitching coach for the Black Hills State softball team.

Prior to joining the staff at Black Hills State, Andreana was a member of the Oregon State softball team, where she helped the Beavers to NCAA Regional appearances in 2012 and 2013. She was named PAC-10 Honorable Mention in 2011 and earned PAC-12 Pitcher of the Week honors in 2013.
A native of Oakville, Ontario, she was a member of the Canadian Senior National Team and earned a bronze medal at the 2010 World Championships in Caracas, Venezuela.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in communication from Oregon State in 2013 and earned her Masters of Business Administration from Black Hills State in 2016.
