In 2014-15, Carly Wynn looks ahead to her third season as an assistant coach with Fresno State after spending the previous two seasons as a coach at her alma mater and former ACC champion Florida State.
The former professional player and All-ACC honoree works specifically with the Bulldogs' outfielders, slappers, short game and base running. Off the field, she helps coordinate the team's equipment and community service projects, and assists with recruiting, camps and other administrative duties.
The 'Dogs have posted back-to-back +30 win seasons and runner-up Mountain West Conference finishes in 2013 and '14, and individually featured a MW-leading nine all-conference honorees in that span.
Wynn's game-changing drive as player has mirrored her coaching personality and continues to rub off on the 'Dogs who ranked top 40 nationally in 2014 in triples (12th) and stolen bases (38th) and first and third in the MW, respectively.
Likewise in 2013, Fresno State stood proudly among the national leaders in triples (12th, 0.31 per game) and stolen bases (29th, 1.61 p/g).
Outfielder Brenna Moss topped the nation in 2013 in triples per game (0.18) and ranked top 100 in stolen bases (15th, 0.67 p/g) and toughest to strike out (72nd, 1:16.3 at-bats).
Team-wise, the 'Dogs the team shattered the school season stolen base record in '13 with 87 swipes, while Moss easily reset the individual all-time best with 34 thefts.
After she set a school record four stolen bases in the 2014 season finale vs. Nevada, Moss retied her school season mark, and the 'Dogs racked up another 75 stolen bases team-wise.
Moss's excellence in the field was equally notable, and the 2014 Mountain West Defensive Player of the Year logged 14 assists en route to All-Region Second-Team laurels.
The team's hard work off the field has been equally recognized with nine MW All-Academic nods in 2013 and Academic All-District selections in 2013 (Diange Runge) and '14 (Hannah Harris).
Before joining the distinguished Bulldog program, Wynn served as a graduate assistant and volunteer assistant for the Seminoles from 2010-12, and assisted with the program's offense, defense and camps.
Prior to joining the 'Noles' coaching staff , Wynn spent a season playing in the National Professional Fastpitch league for the Tennessee Diamonds.
As a player, the three-time team captain helped Florida State to four straight NCAA Tournament trips. A three-time All-ACC outfielder, she sported the highest batting average (.378) under the current coaching staff and still ranks top 10 in eight of 10 squad's all-time offensive categories.
In the classroom her excellence was equally recognized as a two-time Academic All-ACC and Academic All-America honoree.
A native of Sharpsburg, Ga., Wynn graduated from Florida State in May of 2010 with a bachelor's degree in Psychology and in December of 2011 with a master's degree in Sport Management.
