Delaware Coach of the Year Kristin Caldwell to lead Caravel baseball

Kristin Caldwell’s narrative:

I was hired as the varsity baseball coach at Caravel Academy in Delaware back in December. Two coaches ago I was coach Paul Niggebrugge’s assistant coach at Caravel for 11 seasons.

My background is in baseball. I played t-ball on up, all the way through playing high school baseball at Caravel in the late 90’s. We won the Delaware state championship in 1998. I played basketball at the University of Delaware and then was fortunate enough to pitch in 3 women’s World Cups for the USA Women’s National team.

I was previously the girls basketball coach here for 16 years. Last year I retired after we won the 2022 state championship. I have an 8th grade son, so when the baseball job opened up this fall the timing seemed right, and I applied.

Very very blessed to be the baseball coach at Caravel. I love this school and the baseball program so much!
