BECKLEY, WV (WVNS) — Ryan Stafford, Principal of Woodrow Wilson High School, announces the new women’s softball head coach has been revealed.

After a board meeting Tuesday, February 28, 2023, it was approved that Michael Maiolo, assistant head coach for women’s softball, will move into the position of head coach.

Ed Mullins, who had previously assisted Maiolo will remain on board along with the school’s head girl’s soccer coach, Julie Agnor to help Maiolo with the girl’s softball team.

Maiolo said they have big plans for the season, “Just to improve, just for each one of them to get better. and we would like to win this section and move on out to the region and states for sure.”

Natalia Meade a shortstop for the Flying Eagles said that she is just hoping to see her team continue to bond like they did last year.

“I want to be able to build as a team and play as a team, not single anybody out and build the team bonding like we did last year. We did great last year, great team efforts and that’s how we put together a great season,” Meade said.

Meade added it is great to have a coach they are familiar with leading the way.
