McFalls on the addition of Lamberth to the coaching staff …

We are very excited to have Meghan join our coaching staff.  She has a lot to offer our program as a coach, mentor and former player.  She competed at a high level at Northwestern under a great coaching staff and has excelled quickly in her coaching career.  She is originally from St. Louis and has established relationships with coaches and players in the Midwest.  I believe Meghan will establish strong relationships with our players, continue to develop and build confidence with our pitching staff, and will work hard to bring top recruits to Kansas.

Lamberth on accepting the position at Kansas …

I want to thank Jennifer McFalls and Kansas for the opportunity to join an exceptional coaching staff to lead the Jayhawks softball program. I am excited to work in top facilities with our pitching staff and continue to develop and challenge them to compete for championships in the Big 12. My goal is to bring a new energy to revitalize the way our pitchers will attack some of the top hitters in the country. I look forward to mentoring the young women who will proudly represent Kansas on the field, in the classroom and in our community.
