Ashton Feldhaus Joins Eckerd College Staff as Women’s Basketball Assistant Coach

The Eckerd College Athletics Department welcomed a new member to the team on July 1 as Ashton Feldhaus joined Paul Honsinger‘s staff as the women’s basketball assistant coach.

Feldhaus, a native of Richmond, Kentucky, brings a strong playing resume at the NCAA Division I level at both Butler (Ind.) University and the University of Tennessee at Martin.

As a freshman at Butler, Feldhaus played in all 31 games averaging 12.4 minutes per contest. She then transferred to UT-Martin, missing two seasons due to the NCAA transfer rule and an injury.

Her first season with the Skyhawks saw Feldhaus earn Second Team All-OVC honors and OVC All-Newcomer honors and was a six-time conference newcomer of the week while averaging 11.0 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.  As a senior, she earned a repeat selection to the All-OVC second team despite being slowed by injury.

“I am very excited to have Ashton join our program,” Honsinger said.  “She is very eager to begin her coaching career and brings the type of attitude and work ethic on which our program thrives.”

Feldhaus received a Bachelors Degree in Communications and a Masters Degree in Family and Consumer Science from UT-Martin.  She replaces Deandra Schirmer, who was named the head coach at Valdosta State (Ga.) University in May.
