Nicole Arias, who just completed her second season as an assistant coach for the Princeton softball program, was selected to head the U.S. entry at the 2017 Maccabiah Games in Israel.

Arias played for the USA Maccabi Women's National Softball Team, winning the gold medal at the 2007-08 Pan American Maccabi Games in Argentina and the 2009 and 2013 World Maccabi Games in Israel.

An alumna of nearby West Windsor-Plainsboro High School South and later William Paterson, Arias was the head coach at her high school alma mater before joining the staff at Princeton before the 2015 season. This spring, she helped lead the Tigers back to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2008.

The team Arias will lead at the Maccabiah Games, which will run July 4-18, 2017, is still being assembled. Tryouts are set to occur next month near Chicago.
