Vanessa
Becerra
-----------------------------Head Coach
-----------------------------Fourth Season at Washburn
-----------------------------Metro State, 2009
Vanessa Becerra is in her fourth season as the Ichabod head
softball coach being named on Aug. 3, 2011 after spending four
seasons at Metro State in Denver, Colo., with the final season coming as the head coach.
In three seasons, Becerra has coached 12 Ichabods to all-MIAA
selections and in the classroom, she has had 37 players named to
the MIAA Academic Honor Roll, four MIAA Scholar Athletes
and four MIAA Presidential Scholars.
In her first season, she led the Ichabods to a 19-24 record after
not taking the position until just weeks prior to school starting.
The Ichabods reached the second day of the MIAA Tournament as
three Washburn players received all-MIAA honors including two
first team all-conference selections.
In season two, Washburn placed three members on the allMIAA squad with two second team picks.
During the 2014 season, Washburn finished in a tie for sixth
place in the MIAA and placed six players on the all-conference
team.
Overall she has gone 69-90 in four seasons at Washburn and
103-108 in five seasons as a head coach overall.
In her lone season as the head coach at Metro State, Becerra led
the Roadrunners to a 34-18 record winning the Rocky Mountain
Athletic Conference regular season championship while advancing
to the NCAA regional tournament for the third straight season. In
2010, Metro State finished third in the nation in home runs per
game and 16th in the nation in slugging percentage while leading
the RMAC in runs scored per game and home runs.
The Roadrunner pitching staff was also successful as they were
second in the RMAC in earned run average and third in opponent

batting average in conference games with four players earning allRMAC postseason honors.
As an assistant coach in 2010, the Roadrunners won their
second straight RMAC crown advancing to the NCAA College
World Series in St. Joseph as Metro State finished the season 53-6
including a 37-2 record in RMAC action. The coaching staff was
honored as the National Fastpitch Central Regional Coaching
Staff of the Year. The Roadrunners also set an NCAA record for
home runs in a season with 112.
During the 2009 season, Metro State was 40-12 overall winning the first of its three straight RMAC Championships.
In 2008, in the Roadrunners first season after the program was
reinstated, Metro State was 26-11.
Active in the community, Metro State joined with the Denver West High School softball team working with them on life
skills, academic and personal pressures leading to an award from
the NCAA for its community engagement efforts.
As a player, Becerra spent the 2006-07 season at Armstrong
Atlantic in Savannah, Ga., where she was named the 2007 Peach
Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year. Prior to playing at
Armstrong Atlantic, Becerra played two seasons at Otero Junior
College where she earned All-American and Region IX Player of
the Year honors in 2006 helping the Rattlers to two region championships playing for former Metro State coach and current Colorado State head coach Jen Fisher. In 2005 Becerra batted .417 with
68 RBI and 85 base hits with 20 home runs.
Becerra graduated from Metro State in 2009 with her bachelor’s
degree in sports industry operations and gave birth to her daughter
Makaila in June 2010.
