Stanley took over as the interim coach following the resignation of Cori Thiermann in 2019. Prior to that, she was an assistant under Thiermann for five seasons, during which Berry won four Southern Athletic Association titles and advanced to the NCAA Super Regional for the first time in school history.
Well-deserved Coach Stanley! So happy for you and the program. Onwards and upwards💙💙💙 https://t.co/aaTkXRdKlL
