Maryland softball on Monday announced the hiring of Jen Lapicki as an assistant coach. Lapicki spent the previous three seasons as an associate head coach at Fordham, which won a conference tournament title and made an appearance in the 2022 NCAA Tournament.

Lapicki joins Katey Hendershott as assistants on head coach Lauren Karn’s first staff with the program. Karn was hired in late August.

“I am excited to join a program that is committed to competing for championships on the field, while creating an all around impactful student-athlete experience,” Lapicki said in a release. “I look forward to hitting the ground running.”

Prior to her stint at Fordham, Lapicki was the head coach at Holy Cross for five years. Before that, she spent one season as the head coach of the New Jersey Breakers — a youth developmental program — and also served as an assistant at both Princeton and Iona.

“The way [Lapicki] can connect with her student-athletes as she works to grow their skills both on and off the field is remarkable,” Karn said. “She will be a huge asset to our program and I’m looking forward to the growth we will see offensively under her guidance.”
