SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara University has appointed former Bronco pitcher Jaime Forman-Lau as the 10th head coach in school's 25-year softball history, the department of Athletics and Recreation announced today. Forman-Lau began her duties earlier this week. She replaces Marcy Crouch, who resigned in June after leading the Broncos to two conference championships during her five-year reign. Forman-Lau spent the past two seasons leading the Broncos in the circle, earning Pacific Coast Softball Conference Pitcher of the Year honors each year. A team captain, Forman-Lau was also twice named to the NFCA All-Pacific Region and All-PCSC teams, while being named the squad's most valuable defensive player in 2003 and Bronco of the Year in 2004. She was recently selected to play against the U.S. National Team as a member of two separate All-Star teams. "I am extremely excited to continue to be a part of the university community and softball program," Forman-Lau said. "Marcy and (assistant coach) Mick (Myrback) have done a great job in building this team's success. I look forward to contributing in a new capacity and taking the Broncos to the next level." Forman-Lau began her collegiate career at Stanford and was part of team that place third at the 2001 Women's College World Series. She graduated in three years with a bachelor's degree in Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. With two years of eligibility remaining, Forman-Lau transferred to the mission campus and played for the Broncos. She earned a master's degree in Higher Education Administration in June.
