Coach Mendenhall - I grew up in Lodi and played 4-years of HS varsity softball.  I also played travel ball for the Nor Cal Tremors, and was selected for the USA Junior Olympic Softball Team.  I attended UOP on a softball (and academic) scholarship. After college I coached high school softball at Florin High School in Sacramento. I then spent 7 years as the assistant coach at UC Davis. While at Davis I helped lead the team to their first DII National Title. I spent the next 13 years teaching PE in Woodland, and during this time I coached the WHS Varsity softball for 5 years.  While there I helped lead them to their first section championship in school history. I have also been coaching middle school volleyball for the past 13 years. I'm also a teacher at Stonegate Elementary!
Coach Hatz - I am one of the 6-8 PE teachers at Stonegate, as well as the 6-8 Athletic Director. I have taught and coached in the district for the last 20 years. I love all sports, but softball has been a huge part of my life for the last 47 years. I hope to be able share some of the knowledge I have stored upstairs over those years. Like Coach Mendenhall, I have coached at the high school and college levels. I believe in working hard, having strong fundamentals, and having fun.
Coach Haught - Hello! I'm here to help your girls improve their game, sportsmanship and have some fun. I've coached for 7 years at the middle school level, and 3 years with Elk Grove Girls Softball. I still play ball and still enjoy the heck out of this sport. I'm looking forward to not only getting to know your daughters but watching them grow.
