Wichita State University’s softball team has seen outstanding growth over the last decade. The $19.85 million Wilkins Stadium renovation plan represents a remarkable commitment to the program and its continued impact on the university, while expanding the opportunity for women student-athletes at Wichita State.
“The growth of Shocker Softball is a testament to all of the former and current student-athletes that have worked hard to leave the program better than they found it. I can’t wait for each and every one of them to see the fruits of their labor and for our fans to pack the stadium to cheer on this program.”
Head Coach, Shocker Softball
The proposed $19.85 million renovation to Wilkins Stadium provides a definitive plan through which WSU will be positioned to maximize student-athlete development, recruitment and retention, helping build a consistent championship-level softball program and highlighting the caliber of female athletes at Wichita State.
