Lauren Ebstein joins the Crusader coaching staff as an assistant coach for the 2013 season, working directly with the Crusader pitchers and catchers.   Ebstein comes to Valpo after spending two seasons as an assistant at Colgate.

In her two seasons at Colgate, Ebstein helped guide the Raiders to a 28-11 mark in Patriot League play, including the league regular season title in 2011.  She coached the PL Pitcher of the Year in 2011 and three All-League selections at pitchers over her two seasons, as well as 10 total All-League choices.  Raider pitchers earned league Pitcher of the Week accolades seven times as well.

Prior to arriving at Colgate, Ebstein served as an assistant coach for two seasons at Tufts, helping guide the squad to a fourth-place finish at the Division  III College World Series in 2009.

She also was selected as a team captain for her senior year. Ebstein graduated from Tufts in May of 2007 with a bachelor's degree in English and  psychology, and received her master's degree in journalism from Boston University in January of 2009.
