The spring of 2016 will find Lauren Hightower starting her fifth year as assistant coach at Wesleyan College. She will play a vital role with the team as its outfield and hitting coach. Her experience with softball as a high school, travel ball, and college player will be invaluable to the team. She has also spent a few years as a high school umpire. Her dedication to each player's improvement not only on the field but also in the classroom and life in general is a great asset to Wesleyan College.
Hightower attended Westminster High School, where she was a member of the softball and basketball teams, and then went on to play softball at the University of Virginia. She graduated from UVA in 1991 with a degree in religious studies.
Lauren resides in Macon with her wife Paige, her adorable 8 year old son Jessie, and 3 unruly but sweet dogs.
