“I feel extremely blessed to have the opportunity to lead the Wingate University softball program forward to continued success,” Stanclift says. “From the moment I stepped on campus and visited with administration I could feel what a special place Wingate is. I thank Steve Poston and Michelle Caddigan and the entire hiring committee for their time spent getting to know me and allowing my passion for the game be shared. Their commitment to excellence in the entire student-athlete experience matches my own and I am excited to put my stamp on the culture of the Bulldog softball program.”

Her focus on developing our young women into strong leaders who will leave the softball program well prepared for the next phase of their lives will be invaluable.”
