There’s a saying at Southern Miss, leave it better than you found it, and Head Softball Coach Wendy Hogue certainly did just that.
On Friday, Hogue announced her decision to step away from her dream job after five years at the helm, leading the Golden Eagles to a record of 124-146 during that time.
Hogue says her resignation has everything to do with family and her desire to be more present with her two children.
In 2019, USM put together a 30-win season under Hogue’s watch, her third-winning season at Southern Miss.
Her 2016 squad also hit that same 30 win plateau en route to a Conference USA co-west division championship.
Those 30 win campaigns are the most since the 2004 season and this year’s 11 game winning streak is the longest since the 2000 Women’s College World Series team.
