Norwin High School has a new girls soccer coach.

The district's Board of Education voted Monday night to hire Lauren Czapor, a 2008 Norwin graduate and former Knights player, as varsity girls soccer coach. She replaces Jeff Palm, as the board voted in January to open the soccer position to outside applicants.

“Growing up through the Norwin Soccer program, I would like nothing more than to give back to the community,” Czapor said in a district statement. “I feel that the four years spent in high school are some of the most important for shaping the lives of young people. I know that I can not only be their coach and mentor, but also a role model for them to look up to as they grow in preparation for the real world.”

Czapor played for Norwin from 2004-07, when the Knights went 74-17-2. In that span, the team made four playoff appearances, won three section championships and finished as the WPIAL runner-up in 2004.

After high school, Czapor played soccer at Carlow University, where she was a four-year starter and served as team captain for two seasons. She was a three-time all-conference selection and was voted Carlow's Most Outstanding Student Athlete in 2011, when she was inducted into the school's athletic Hall of Fame.

For the past three years, Czapor has coached at the A.C. Athletico youth soccer academy in Monroeville, leading teams to divisional and Western Pennsylvania championships. She also conducted local youth soccer clinics, focusing on player skill development through drills.
