DeLucas served as an assistant coach for the softball team under previous head coach Scot Adams for the past two seasons before being elevated to the interim head coach in May after his departure.
“I am very excited to be given the opportunity to become head coach of the Albright softball team,” DeLucas said. “I look forward to coaching and giving back to a program that gave me so much as a player.”
