Eight-time NCAA All-American Sarah Stockwell is in her first season as a senior assistant coach for the men’s and women's programs and fifth season overall at Virginia Tech.
In 2014-15, Stockwell helped Virginia Tech be the only ACC program to have its men’s and women’s teams finish in the top three at the ACC Championships. The women’s team improved from a fifth-place finish the year before. Combined, team had 26 members qualify for the NCAA Championships with 13 men and 13 women. Stockwell helped coach two All-Americans and three honorable mention All-American performances at the NCAA Championships.
In 2013-14, she helped the men’s team win its first ACC title and both programs finished in the top 25 at the NCAA Championship.
Stockwell helped the coaching staff at Virginia Tech produce three-consecutive top-25 finishes for both the men and women’s squads in the last four years. She has coached six All-Americans and eight ACC champions and signed three top-20 recruiting classes.
In 2013, the men’s team placed second at the ACC Championship, and both squads took their largest contingent in school history to the NCAA Championship. Last season, the H2Okies men’s squad won the ACC Championship and finished in the top 20 at NCAAs for the third consecutive year.
Stockwell joined the H2Okies from Indiana University, where she was a standout swimmer and is the former record holder for the 100- and 200-yard breaststroke as well as the 200-yard and 400-yard medley.
In addition to coaching, Stockwell has also served as a strength and conditioning graduate assistant while earning her master's degree in kinesiology.
