Texas Tech University
Assistant Coach Representative (2019)
Entering her third year with the Red Raiders, Sam Marder will serve her first season as the associate head coach in 2019. Marder, a 2016 Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame inductee and former professional player, oversees Texas Tech's offense while also working with the Red Raider catchers and assisting with recruiting. In her first year with the program, the Red Raiders eclipsed 50 home runs as a team, compiled 13 triples to match its fourth-best output in school history and increased its number of bases on balls. With Marder's guidance, sophomore Jessica Hartwell finished the regular season as the only Big 12 player with 10 or more home runs and 12 or more doubles.
