Pius X Alumna to Lead Softball Program

Athletic Director Tim Aylward ’69 announced today that Christy (Kobza) Kruger ’05 will be the new head softball coach at Pius X High School. Kruger replaces Coach Don Rempe who stepped down last fall after 5 years at the Thunderbolt helm.

“We had a strong group of candidates for the position,” noted Aylward when he introduced the assistant coach and Pius X alumna to the Thunderbolt softball team. “Coach Kruger was our top choice and I am excited to have her lead our softball program.”

Kruger served as a Thunderbolt assistant coach under Rempe and coaches a select softball team for the Nebraska Blue Diamonds.

As a former Thunderbolt softball player and captain, Kruger was a 4-year letter winner and earned All-State and All-City honors. She was a part of the 2002 State Championship Softball Team and along with her 2003 and 2004 teammates holds four hitting records. She also holds the catching records for number of runners caught stealing (17) and throw-out percentage (66%). Her post high school softball career continued as a 4-year letterman at Doane College (2007-2011) where she was named GPAC Player of the Week, a NAIA Scholar Athlete, and NAIA All-Conference.

“It is an honor to have been chosen as the next head softball coach for Pius X,” Coach Kruger commented. “I am very excited for what the future holds for the program and this great group of girls.”

Ranking among the top 5% of all Catholic high schools in the country, Pius X provides an affordable, Catholic education in a positive environment. As part of the Pius X family, students deepen their faith and knowledge, and have opportunities to pursue their talents and passions. With its largest enrollment ever at 1,225 students, Pius X has served the Lincoln community for 60 years and works to instill six core values - excellence, service, purpose, faith, integrity and charity - into the next generation of leaders.
