    RIO GRANDE, Ohio - The newest face to head up the University of Rio Grande's softball program is one that the RedStorm faithful should be very familiar with.
    Amber Bowman, the program's starting shortstop from 2008-11, has been named the new head coach of her alma mater. Rio Grande athletic director Jeff Lanham announced the hiring on Thursday.
    Bowman replaces Kristen Bradshaw, who resigned last month after three seasons at the helm to accept a teaching and coaching position at Portsmouth High School.
