Tabor College has announced that Emily Ingalls will serve as acting head softball coach effective immediately. Ingalls earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from Tabor College in 2018 after receiving her Associates of Arts degree from Feather River College, Calif., in 2016. She is currently a graduate assistant coach pursuing her Master’s in Business Administration from Tabor. Ingalls is filling in for Bryan Howard who resigned early last week.
As the graduate assistant coach for the Bluejays last season, Ingalls helped lead Tabor to a 13-11 KCAC record, placing the Bluejays fifth in the final regular-season standings.
Ingalls was part of the 2018 Bluejay team that won both the KCAC regular-season title and the KCAC tournament championship, qualifying Tabor for its first NAIA National Tournament Opening Round appearance in Oklahoma City. Tabor posted an overall record of 63-40, and a KCAC record of 36-14 during the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
“We are confident in Emily’s ability to manage our softball program as we search for a permanent head coach,” said Tabor College Athletic Director Marty Ziesemer. “Her commitment to Tabor softball and its success is evident and greatly appreciated. A national search has already begun, and we hope to have a new head coach in place by the time fall classes start in mid-August.”
