Class of 1994
Lori Schimmel still ranks as one of the top pitchers in Bethany history. Her 1.17 career ERA stands second all-time at BC and her 1991 total of three saves is still the single-season record in that category. She helped lead Bethany to consecutive conference titles in 1991 and 1992 while earning All-PAC honors all four seasons she played. In addition, Schimmel was named PAC Pitcher of the Year in 1991.
In the classroom, Schimmel would graduate cum laude in 1994 with a degree in physical education. She was a member of Phi Mu and the Phi Delta Psi physical education honor society.
After her time at Bethany, Schimmel was at Vincentian Academy near Pittsburgh for four years as a softball and basketball coach. Currently, Schimmel is the head softball coach at the College of Wooster (Ohio), where she’s been since 1998. Building the program from scratch, Schimmel, who was named Co-Coach of the Year in the North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) in 2005, has guided the Scots to 234 wins during her tenure. Schimmel, who graduated from Mount Alvernia High School near Pittsburgh, resides in Wooster, Ohio.
