LSUS names Meghan Neffendorf as director of Sports Medicine


LSUS Athletics has announced that Meghan Neffendorf will be the new Director of Sports Medicine. Neffendorf takes over the role after two years of being the Assistant Athletic Trainer at LSUS, working with former Director of Sports Medicine Lance Champagne.

“I am looking forward to working with Meghan in her new role,” said LSUS Athletic Director Lucas Morgan. “She brings a high level of energy and passion every day. Our student-athletes are in good hands with her leading our Sports Medicine Department.

Throughout the past two years, Neffendorf worked directly with the men and women’s soccer programs and assisted Champagne with the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as the baseball team. Neffendorf will now take the lead for all six athletic programs at LSUS through her new role.

“I want to thank Athletic Director Lucas Morgan for giving me the opportunity to be the new Director of Sports Medicine at LSUS,” said Neffendorf. “I want to thank Lance (Champagne) for mentoring me and preparing me for this new role. I am looking forward to continuing to work alongside all the LSUS coaches and helping the Pilot student-athletes remain healthy and stay on the field and court.”


Neffendorf came to LSUS after a short stint as an Assistant Athletic Trainer at NCAA Division I Southern Illinois University covering volleyball. Prior to that, she spent the majority of her career at the NAIA level. She spent four years at Tennessee Wesleyan University primarily covering men’s soccer, baseball, and men’s/women’s tennis. She was a part of and worked with the 2019 Tennessee Wesleyan baseball team that won the NAIA National Championship. Before TWU, she was at Campbellsville University for two years covering men’s soccer, baseball, and women’s golf.

A native of Frohna, Missouri, Neffendorf received her Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training from Missouri State University in 2011. In 2013, Neffendorf received her Masters of Science in Physical Education with a concentration in Sports Administration from the University of New Mexico. While serving as a graduate assistant at UNM, she was primarily assigned to the softball program and assisted with football.

Neffendorf is married to current LSUS Head Baseball coach Brad Neffendorf, and the two reside in Bossier City with their two children: son Kash and daughter Sutton.
