GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Colorado Mesa University decided to make some changes for the future of their softball program, asking Candace Abrams to resign from the head coaching position she has held the past two seasons.

During her time at the helm she went 55-38-1. The team had one of their more successful years in 2014, winning the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference regular season title with a 26-12 league record.

In all, six players earned All-RMAC recognition under Coach Abrams, and she was happy to have made an impact in just two short years.

"My biggest thing was to teach these young ladies on how to be not only great softball players, but great human beings," said Abrams. "They are certainly proving that to me, and it's amazing. I look forward to following every single one of their careers to the end and wish them nothing but success in the future because they have definitely laid a foundation that I think can be very very successful."

Colorado Mesa has already begun their search for a new head coach.
