St. Laurence High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Teagan Walsh as the head varsity softball coach. In addition to her duties as coach, she will join the admissions staff at St. Laurence.

Walsh, a current resident of Oak Forest, becomes the first softball coach in St. Laurence history. For the last two seasons, she served as an assistant coach for Marist High School’s varsity softball team. While at Marist, she oversaw the pitchers and worked closely with the offense and infielders.

“I am extremely honored by and grateful for the opportunity that President Joe Martinez, Principal Jim Muting and Athletic Director Tim Chandler have given me,” said Walsh. “I know that, with the help of the administration and coaches, we can create a successful softball program for the future girls of St. Laurence.”

A 2015 graduate of Western Illinois University, Walsh was a four-year starter at the Division I level, playing pitcher and first baseman. A lifetime utility player, Walsh brings an all-encompassing perspective to the game as a coach.

“We are very excited to have Coach Walsh lead our softball program,” said St. Laurence Athletic Director Tim Chandler. “She has played the game at a high level and has coached in a very successful program. She knows what it will take to build a winning program, and we are confident that she has the dedication and work ethic necessary to make it happen.”

Softball players entering 4th through 8th grade can meet Coach Walsh for the first time at our softball summer camp from June 26-29. Parents can find more information at stlaurence.8to18.com.
