Roy Kortmann begins his 28th season as head softball coach at LIU in 2021-22, and is in the midst of his third decade as the director of one of the top programs in the Northeast region. During his time at LIU, Kortmann has built a perennial softball powerhouse in downtown Brooklyn by earning ten Northeast Conference championships (1999-00, 2003-04, 2006-08, 2010, 2012, 2016) and subsequent appearances in the NCAA Division I Women's College World Series field.
Kortmann has set up his teams' postseason success with exceptional play in the regular season, as evidenced by his 12 NEC regular-season titles (2000-04, 2006-10, 2016, 2019), including a pair of five-year streaks. The unparalleled accomplishments of Kortmann and his staff have led to LIU earning NEC Coaching Staff of the Year honors 10 times (1996, 1998, 2000-04, 2010, 2016, 2019) and four players (Rosette Rough, Randi Gillespie, Blaire Porter and Bianca Mejia) being named All-Americans during his tenure.
