Sophie Windover enters her first season as head volleyball coach at Wilmington College in 2021-22.
Windover has spent the last two seasons at fellow Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) member Heidelberg University, assisting long-time Head Coach Jason Miller in all facets of the program. She especially focused on the recruiting process, helping bring in large classes during each of her years. The Student Princes finished with a 21-8 record her first season on staff and appeared in the top 25 that season.
In addition to recruiting, Windover organized team travel, assisted in skill development by running more one-on-one workouts and provided academic mentoring to improve classroom improvement. Heidelberg's team grade point average was over a 3.50 each of her two years with the program.
Prior to Heidelberg, Windover spent three years in the admissions office at Belhaven University Atlanta. She attended recruiting events, guided students through the admission process and collaborated with various departments to organization campus events.
Windover has also spent time as a club coach since 2015, both in Tiffin, Ohio, and in Atlanta, Georgia. She's helped mentor club players to earn spots on collegiate teams as well as earning bids to the national championship.
A graduate of Emmanuel College (Georgia), Windover was the program's first volleyball signee. She was a four-year member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) program.
Windover begins her Wilmington tenure on July 1.
