During the 2015 season when the Sycamores earned their first ever trip to the NCAA Tournament, Zust coached the pitching staff to an ERA of 1.67 in the three post season games, including a win over Louisville, first in program history.


Combined in the MVC Tournament and NCAA Tournament, the pitching staff under Zust held an earned run average of 1.71 with a 5-2 record, including games against No. 10 Mizzou and the top four teams in the Missouri Valley Conference.


In addition, Zust coached Taylor Lockwood to Missouri Valley Conference Tournament MVP honors as well as 2nd Team All-MVC in the regular season.


During the 2013-14 season, Zust coached junior Yvette Alavarez to an MVC leading 17 wins with three one- hit games. In her first season with the Sycamores Zust coached Lindsey Beisser to second team All-MVC honors.


Before joining Coach Boaman's staff at Indiana State, Zust spent a season as a volunteer assistant coach at Drake University where she helped lead the Bulldogs to a 34-21 record and a second place finish in the MVC.


Zust, who graduated in 2010, was a standout pitcher at the University of Iowa where she compiled a 56-27 overall record with 597 strikeouts. The Des Moines native ranks in the school’s top-10 in several categories, including career games, innings pitched, complete games, wins and strikeouts. In addition, Zust earned Iowa’s Most Improved Player Award in 2007 and 2008, took home its Gold Glove Award in 2009 and threw two no-hitters - one in 2009 and another 364 days later in 2010.
