Rachel Boldt is in her second year as a student assistant coach on the Saluki staff.
She works in the practice setting as well as the office, providing assistance with film, administrative tasks, and event planning.
Saluki head coach Dana Eikenberg enjoys having Boldt as a member of her staff.
"Rachel is an important piece of our coaching staff," Eikenberg said. "She is a student of the game - the more she sees, the more she wants to do." Boldt, who hails from Mt. Vernon, Ill., transferred to SIU after initially signing a national letter of intent with UMKC.
After a series of knee injuries cut her playing career short, Boldt joined the Saluki staff as a student assistant in August 2005. She is currently working towards her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.
