Melyssa Lombardi

As the head coach of Oregon Softball, Melyssa plays a huge role in leading and mentoring her student-athletes so they're ready to conquer anything - both on and off the field.

In celebration of Title IX’s 50th anniversary, BECU is proud to partner with Women In Flight and Oregon Athletics to produce a video series highlighting Oregon women’s athletic programs.

Women In Flight has been tremendous for our program... The dynamic, the chemistry, the standards, our culture, all of that are huge parts of what we do on the field and off the field.

With over 21 years of coaching experience, Melyssa Lombardi brought a championship mentality to Oregon Softball when she became head coach in July 2018. In just her second season as head coach, Melyssa led the team to a 22-2 record before the pandemic canceled the rest of the season. In 2021, the team picked up where they left off, earning a 40-17 record and a top 10 ranking for most of the season.

This year, the Ducks went 33-18 and made their second straight NCAA Regional final under Coach Lombardi. Four Ducks were named to the NFCA All-Pacific Region Team while six total players brought in All Pac-12 honors, including three freshman who made the Pac-12 All-Freshman squad.
