Emmitsburg, Md. (March 13, 2018) -- Mount St. Mary's University Director of Athletics Lynne Robinson has announced that former assistant Tori Krause will take over the helm of the Mount St. Mary's women's soccer program, becoming the seventh head coach in program history.
"We are very pleased to name Tori Krause as the next head women's soccer coach at Mount St. Mary's University," said Robinson. "Tori's passion for soccer, her positive work ethic, as well as her collegiate playing and coaching experience perfectly position her to direct our women's soccer program. I am confident that our women's soccer team will thrive under Tori's leadership."
Krause was an assistant coach under Joe Nemzer on the Mount's staff last season in her first year with the program. She played a vital role in many different areas with the Mount, including: leading all technical aspects of training, providing game and practice organization and periodization, preparing scouting reports and film analysis, aiding in the recruiting process, and implementing technology-based analysis.
"I would like to thank President Trainor, Lynne, the search committee and all the other coaches and athletic staff for this opportunity," said Krause. "I have absolutely loved my time so far at the Mount and with this team, their dedication and commitment to this program and university is unparalleled. I could not be more excited for where this program is heading and to have the opportunity to lead it on its continued ascension."
Before coming to the Mount, Krause worked as the director of performance analysis with the women's soccer program at the University of North Carolina during the 2016 season. In her role, she was responsible for practice and match analytics using Catapult GPS and ProZone analysis. Krause used the data to create daily, weekly and season game reports to enhance scouting and player and team performance.
As a collegiate student-athlete at Davidson College, Krause made 51 career appearances as a center midfielder with the Wildcats. The Cary, N.C. native graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in history.
After graduation, she attended the University of North Carolina where she received her Master's Degree in sport administration in the spring of 2016. While in graduate school, Krause served as a volunteer on the women's soccer coaching staff, primarily helping with practice and game analytics. Following two seasons as a volunteer on the Tar Heels' staff, Krause was named director of performance analysis for the 2016 season.
During her time at Chapel Hill, Krause also completed an internship with the UNC Athletics New Media department and with GoHeels Productions, where she worked on office and gameday projects.
