Indiana softball found its new head coach when Shonda Stanton was introduced Saturday.
Prior to arrival in Bloomington, Ind., Stanton was the head coach for Marshall for 18 seasons and became the all-time win leader with 560. In 12 of those seasons she recorded more than 30 wins.
“I would like to thank [vice president and director of athletics] Fred Glass for this incredible honor to lead the Hoosier softball program. … I appreciate the foundation the previous staff has constructed and will work to elevate Indiana University softball to prominence in the Big Ten and on the national landscape,” Stanton told IU Athletics.
Last season, the Hoosiers went 23-31 and only won nine conference games. Stanton will take over duties from Michelle Gardner who was the IU head coach since 2009.
