Head Coach Howie Bierman

Coach Howie Bierman began his McHenry County College tenure in 2002. Prior to coaching at MCC he was head coach for the Elgin Community College women's softball team for several years where he had one Academic All-American and seven Academic All-Conference players.

He also coached at Barrington and Burlington High Schools. He was a part of the coaching staff for the 18 and under summer travel team, The Lake County Liberty and has been a Specialty Coach for Hitting and Pitching at Player's Choice Academy in Huntley for many years.

Coach Bierman feels that with solid recruiting classes, if the girls work hard and if the pitching and defense is strong, the Scots should be competing favorably at the conference and regional levels, every year. Annual goals include winning the conference championship and making it to final four in the NJCAA regional. He tells his players to "work to the best of their ability and to achieve the goals that they set for themselves at the beginning of the year."

Coach Bierman is now semi-retired and lives in Elgin.

Brittany Holm began her coaching career at MCC in 2012-13. Previously Brittany played two years of softball at MCC, for the Scots, and performed admirably in the outfield, at the plate and most importantly, in the classroom. She then transferred successfully and played her last two years of intercollegiate fast-pitch softball at Judson University in Elgin, IL. She completed her Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Sport Science with a concentration in Sport Administration along with completing an internship as a Student Assistant Coach with the Judson University Softball Team.

Holm is currently working on a double Master's Degree in Business Administration and Organizational Leadership. Brittany's experience, as a former MCC student-athlete and four-year college softball player, bring a wealth of understanding and insight to the program and to the individuals on the team. Brittany is not only an alumnus but now a dedicated, valued and committed member of the Scots' coaching staff.
