Thuma finished the 1998 season with a .450 batting average and .594 slugging percentage. She also went 27 for 27 on stolen bases that season.
Thuma (maiden name-Wenger) has impressive career stats, posting a .454 batting average and a .560 slugging percentage while stealing 92 of 98 bases. Thuma is a two-time All-American and earned all-tournament honors in the 1998 NCAA Divion III College World Series with a tournament batting average of .636.
Thuma continues to share her wealth of knowledge with the Falcon team as the Srength/Conditioning and Outfield Coach. She has served as an asst. coach longer than anyone else on staff and continues to work hard to make the falcons a better team.
Coach Weaver says "I could not do what I do at Messiah without Jen over the years. She has faithfully served as an asst. coach and helped the program tremendously over the years." Jen also helps at all the falcon camps and clinics instructing youth of all ages.
Away from Messiah, Jen works in the health and fitness field. She is married to her husband, Michael Thuma, and they have one child, Kaeden (1).
