Laurie Pajakowski

"One of the most talented softball pitchers in Valpo history, Laurie was also an accomplished volleyball player for the Crusaders.

Valpo's all-time leader in victories (50), Pajakowski also holds school records for career saves, and single-season marks for wins (17), earned run average (1.08), saves, innings pitched (196) and complete games (26). She also stands second all-time in innings pitched (624), strikeouts (348), complete games (81) and third in stolen bases (26).

A First Team All-North Star Conference performer in 1986, Laurie tossed two no-hitters during her career. A four-year letterwinner, she was selected as Valpo's most valuable player in 1988 and 1989. Upon graduation in 1989, Laurie played for the East Team at the United States Olympic Festival.

A three-year letterwinner in volleyball, Pajakowski joined the Valpo team as a walk-on and earned a scholarship. She ranks among Valpo's leaders in single-match digs with 29.

Laurie earned a Bachelor of Science in business administration and has worked as an account executive since 1990. She has been active in several civic organizations, including the American Cancer Society.
