Head Coach- 4th Season
After 12 years as an assistant coach and recruiting cordinator for the Kohawks, Meyer was named the head coach of the program in July of 2014. Meyer took over for Bob Timmons, the winningest coach in school history and one of just three coaches in NCAA Division III history with over 900 career wins. Meyer had previously served as an assistant coach for Coe from 1994-97 under Mary Rausch. During her time as an assistant, the Kohawks won three Iowa Conference Championships, went to 11 NCAA Regional Championships and participated in two NCAA National Championship Series.
A third baseman for the Kohawks from 1981–85, the Center Point native was a four-time All-Midwest Conference selection. She also earned All-Midwest Region honors. Meyer was also a team and offensive MVP and two-year captain for Coe. In 1999, she was inducted into the Coe College Athletic Hall of Fame and is a member of the Coe College Alumni Association.
She also coached 10, 12 and 14-and-under teams in the Eby's/Cedar Rapids Blue Devils softball organization and was a member of the 1995 USA Slow Pitch Softball's National Championship Team.
