This is just the latest accolade for the legendary Stuedeman as she has been inducted into a stunning four Halls of Fame including the National Fastpitch Coaches Association Hall of Fame and the Huntsville-Madison County Athletic Hall of Fame, and she has been honored as the Gulf South Conference Coach of the Year an astonishing 10 times.

In 2017, Stuedeman earned her 1,000th victory which at the time made her just the 34th coach in NCAA softball history across all divisions to reach that plateau.

The 30 Women Who Shape the State will be honored at a luncheon at The Club in Birmingham on Nov. 14.
