In her second year as an assistant coach, Chelsea Spencer is key component in one of the nation’s top softball coaching staffs.

Oregon players quickly responded to her charismatic, hands-on approach as the team staked its first-ever Pac-12 title in 2013 and repeated again in 2014.

The Ducks advanced to a NCAA super regional in her first season (2013) with the team and made it to the Women's College World Series in her second season (2014). Oregon won 50 games in 2013 before posting a school record 56 wins in 2014, as the Ducks claimed their first ever No. 1 ranking.

A four-time WCWS particpant as a player with California and a professional in the NPF, Spencer brings an incredible amount of experience and expertise to Oregon's infielders.

Under her leadership, Oregon made just 50 errors in 66 games in 2014, the fewest in program history. Senior third baseman Courtney Ceo hit an NCAA-best .493 in 2014 while Spencer also helped freshman shortstop Nikki Udria earn honorable mention all-Pac-12 and freshman all-conference honors in her first season with the Ducks. Udria hit .444 in four games at the WCWS in 2014.

Before her tenure in Eugene, the former all-star pro player and All-America shortstop served two seasons as an assistant coach at Michigan State. Serving as the Spartans’ hitting instructor, infield coach and recruiting coordinator, she helped shortstop Lindsey Hansen claim her first NFCA All-America honor in 2011, while center fielder Kylene Hopkins earned all-Big Ten laurels in 2012.

The previous four seasons from 2007-10, she served as the head coach at Chabot Community College in Hayward, Calif. In her final season, she was tabbed the Coast Conference North Division Coach of the Year after she guided the team to a 24-21 record. Her impact on the program also included helping plan a new stadium, eight players matriculating to upper division programs, and a conference player of the year honor in 2009. Her commitment to player development also saw her serve as a strength and conditioning coach and academic advisor. In that same stretch, she worked one season as a graduate assistant softball coach at Holy Names in 2008, and helped the team to a top-20 ranking. She also guided the Alameda High School team as J.V. head coach to an undefeated mark in 2006 - her lone season at the helm.

On the field, Spencer starred for six seasons in the National Professional Fastpitch league for the New York Juggernauts (2005), Philadelphia Force (2006-08), Rockford Thunder (2009) and Tennessee Diamonds (2010). The shortstop and utility player was a four-time all-NPF pick (2007-10), played for the league champion Thunder in 2009 and was a team captain for the Force in 2007.

As a collegian, Pac-12 fans will remember her as key part of California’s greatest run in school history that included a Pac-12 title (2005) and four straight Women’s College World Series trips (2002-05). She started 277 consecutive games at shortstop and helped the Bears to the national title in 2002, and runner-up finishes in 2003 and 2004. Among her individual accolades, she was an NFCA third team All-American, all-Pac-12 and all-region pick as a junior in 2004, and a WCWS all-tournament team pick as a freshman in 2002.

Before her collegiate career, the San Leandro, Calif., native a four-time All-Hayward Area Athletic League selection at Arroyo High School. As a junior, she was named the HAAL Player of the Year and selected to ANG Newspaper's Best of the Best in 2000 and 2001. Her teams won HAAL titles in 1998 and '99, while her West Bay Nuggets club team finished in third (1999) and fifth (2000) at ASA Nationals. She also played prep basketball and was a two-time All-HAAL selection.
