Alumna logs 400th win as Rowan University softball coach
Kim Wilson, a 1989 Slippery Rock University graduate, recently posted her 400th career win as Rowan University's head softball coach. The victory came against Swarthmore University.
"Honestly, I didn't even know it was No. 400. When they announced it over the loud speaker, I was shocked," Wilson told the Glouchester (N.J.) County Times. "I really don't pay attention to that stuff because you're so focused on the individual seasons."
Wilson began her career at Rowan 12 years ago and has compiled a 403-136 record. Her Rowan teams won New Jersey Athletic Conference titles in 1998, 2001 and 2002.
"The biggest thing we do is continue to work toward out academics standards," she said. "This past season we had 15 of 19 players at a 3.0 grade-point average or above and 12 of them were on the dean's list."
Prior to joining Rowan, Wilson was the head softball coach at Washington & Jefferson College, where she compiled a 64-57 record. The W&J team finished the 1996 season as Pennsylvania Athletic Conference champions with a 26-5 record.
At SRU, Wilson played volleyball and softball. She graduated with a degree in physical education.
