Head Coach- 5th Season

Kristen Kolter enters her fourth season at the helm of the Maple Leafs in 2017 after being hired as the seventh head coach in the program's history in July 2013.  A native of Decatur (Ind.), Kolter followed a spectacular career at Adams Central High School with successful stints as both a player and a coach at the NAIA level.

Kolter spent two years as the head coach at Lyon College in Batesville, Ark.  The Scots played in the ultra-competitive American Midwest Conference against the likes of Park University, Columbia College, William Woods University, and Missouri Baptist University.  While at Lyon, Kolter was responsible for oversight of all areas of the program, including recruiting, player development, and fundraising while also spending time as the college's Sports Information Director.

Prior to her stint at Lyon, Kolter was a Graduate Assistant Coach at AMC foe Williams Woods University for two seasons.  In two years (2009-2010), she helped the Owls to a 60-42 record, including a 23-9 mark in AMC play.

Kolter also spent one year as a graduate assistant for both the softball and volleyball programs at her alma mater Union University (Jackson, Tenn.).  As a player at Union, Kolter appeared in 159 games, racking up a .285 batting average, 27 doubles, 60 runs batted in and 12 home runs.  Defensively, she committed just one error in four seasons and helped the Bulldogs to a pair of NAIA National Tournaments, finishing the season ranked No. 9 and No. 16 in the country.  Kolter's breakout season was as a junior when she batted .366 with six homers and 23 RBIs earning all conference and all region honors.

A two-time all conference selection in high school, Kolter finished her career with a .399 average with 107 hits, 81 RBIs, 26 doubles, and five triples.  She also excelled in volleyball, leading her team to four straight conference and sectional championships.
