Stinson becomes the ninth coach of the 21-year old program. Stinson replaces Angelina Pane, who left after four seasons to pursue interests outside of the University of Dallas. Stinson’s first date of working was on January 2.
Stinson arrives after serving this past season as an assistant coach with LeTourneau University. She worked and was mentored by third-year head coach John Antonisse. Her responsibilities included: recruiting, developing practice plans, creating plan of attack for games, and helping student-athletes to succeed academically. The Yellow Jackets went 8-9-1 that season and were 3-6-1 in the American Southwest Conference (ASC). Senior midfielder Stephanie Vana was named Third Team All-West Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).
Stinson was no stranger to the ASC, playing soccer at Hardin-Simmons University from 2012-15. A graduate in December, 2015, Stinson earned a Bachelor of Behavioral Science with a major in Criminal Justice and minor in Forensic Studies.
As a goalie for the Cowgirls, Stinson earned three NSCAA All-Regions, four ASC All-Conferences, 2015 ASC Goalkeeper of the Year, 2015 Academic All-ASC, and 2014 ASC All-Tournament Team.
