Kim Aggabao took over the South Dakota State softball program on July 25, 2011, after spending seven seasons as an assistant coach at the University of San Diego.

"I'm very excited to lead the next chapter for South Dakota State softball," Aggabao said. "I'm so grateful to join this wonderful university and first-class athletic department. I look forward to working with the team, and helping them achieve great things on the field, in the classroom and in the Brookings community."

Aggabao work in a number of different capacities in her seven years at the University of San Diego, and most recently served as the team's hitting coach, infield coach and recruiting coordinator. The Toreros increased their win total each of the past three seasons, posting a 24-19 overall mark in 2011. The squad also turned in its third consecutive winning campaign in conference play with a second-place record of 14-6 in the Coastal Division of the Pacific Coast Softball Conference.

As the hitting coach in her final four seasons with the Toreros, Aggabao coached a total of 14 all-conference selections, one all-West Region pick and one PCSC most valuable player. Two Toreros earned first-team all-conference selections, with one earning all-West Region in 2010, when the Aggabao coached hitters compiled a .262 team batting average. A year later, the team batted .271, with five all-conference selections and the league's most valuable player.

A native of Walnut, Calif., Aggabao played at UC San Diego, where she graduated in 2004 with a degree in biology, with a minor in sociology. She started at the middle infield positions in all four years with the Tritons, earning first-team all-California Collegiate Athletic Association honors three times.

A team captain in both her junior and senior years, Aggabao batted 297 as a junior with 47 hits and led the Tritons with 30 RBI. She followed that up with a .411 batting average as a senior in 2004, when she earned CCAA Most Valuable Player honors and garnered a selection to the all-West Region Second Team.

In addition to her league-leading batting average in 2004, she also led the Tritons with 67 hits, with 38 RBI and set a school record with 23 doubles, which tied her for the most in the nation in 2004. All of those accolades earned Aggabao recognition as one of the athletes of the Year by the UCSD Athletic Department in senior year.

In four years with the Tritons, Aggabao compiled a .312 batting average, including a .335 average over her final three years, and ranks among the all-time career leaders in several different categories, including hits, RBI, doubles, runs scored, putouts and assists.

Off the field at UCSD, Aggabao represented her team in the Triton Athletes Council, an organization that serves as a forum aiming to improve the quality of the UCSD student-athletes' collegiate experience.

Aggabao attended Bishop Amat Memorial High School in La Puente, Calif., where she earned four varsity letters in softball as a four-year starter for the Lancers.
