Elizabeth Hornberger, a former Division I standout at Youngstown State University, completed her third season on the CWRU coaching staff in 2016-17. Hornberger is the career leader in three-point field goals and minutes played at YSU where she was earned the Female Leadership Award for Athletics in 2014. Hornberger earned Academic All-Horizon League First Team in 2014 and was a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Council at YSU from 2010-2014.
Hornberger assists with perimeter player development in practice, on-campus recruiting, and game preparation at CWRU. In the Fall of 2014, Hornberger organized the team's academic partnership with Mary M. Bethune Elementary School in Cleveland. Each Friday during the academic year, several Spartan players tutor students at Bethune in mathematics. The program has grown since its inception, and now players from both the Men's and Women's Basketball teams at CWRU tutor each Friday.
Hornberger is a student at the Case Western Reserve University School of Law where she received the Emmerich de Vattel International Law Scholarship and the American Association of University Women's Graduate Scholarship. She is expected to earn her J.D. in May, 2017.
