Coach's Description

We are currently going into our second year ever as a program, and finished up a successful inaugural season in USA South play! We are looking for tough girls, who are willing to help build and rise unselfishly, desire to set standards and goals for our young program, and plan to help the program compete for top conference spots. We are located in Winston Salem, NC, a medium sized college town, and are a small Division 3 institution of about 1,000 all women undergraduate students with co-ed graduate programs founded in 1772. We share a unique credit exchange program with Wake Forest University, another top ranked institution nationally, that allows our students to take classes at WFU that are not being offered at Salem that semester or year free of charge. This program allows our students to be an a coed and competitive environment, and gain an upper edge in academics and the work force. Academically we are extremely strong institution, with over 90% of students applying to medical school being accepted from our campus! We also have a fantastic acceptance into law school, with 100% of students who apply to graduate law programs being accepted. Many of our graduates also pursue great career paths in education, and arts! We are ranked number 2nd for Liberal Arts Colleges in North Carolina, and recently ranked a top 25 Liberal Arts institution in the nation by Washington Monthly!
