    Director of High School Relations


    Stockdale Hired as WBB High School Relations Director

    North Carolina native Rachel Stockdale played for the Wolfpack from 2002-07

    NC State head women's basketball coach Wes Moore announced on July 3, 2013 the hiring of former Wolfpack basketball player Rachel Stockdale as the program's Director of High School Relations. The 2015-16 season will be her third with the Wolfpack.

    Stockdale, from High Point, N.C., was a four-year guard for Hall of Fame head coach Kay Yow from 2002-06. She helped guide the Wolfpack to three NCAA Tournament appearances and was an All-ACC Freshman team selection for the Pack.

    "I'm truly thankful and blessed to have the opportunity to come back home to NC State," said Stockdale. "I love everything about this place! I have a great deal of respect for Coach Moore, and as a proven winner, I'm excited about the future of the Wolfpack women.

    "I look forward to the journey of building and cultivating the relationships surrounding our program."

    In this new role, Stockdale will coordinate all recruiting activities for prospective student-athletes, which includes organizing all official and unofficial visits to campus.

    Stockdale will also be tasked with supervising graduate assistants and student assistants, as well as organizing both coaching clinics and high school camps.

    "Rachel is a perfect fit for us as a former Wolfpack player," said Moore. "It's great to have someone on the staff who has the passion she brings for this program and NC State.

    "She is from North Carolina. She played high school basketball here. She played AAU basketball here. She's spent time coaching in the state at the college level. Rachel brings everything you would want to this position."

    Stockdale spent the 2012-13 season as an assistant coach at East Carolina. The Pirates fashioned a 22-10 record and made a trip to the Postseason WNIT in her only season in Greenville.

    She spent the previous season as an assistant coach at Wake Forest University. The Demon Deacons' 2011-12 campaign was one of the best in school history. Wake won 20 games for just the second time ever and made a trip to the postseason for only the fifth time in school history.

    "Recruiting North Carolina is a big priority for this staff," explained Moore. "Obviously having somebody with Rachel's background is going to make the job transition a little bit smoother as we reach out to coaches."

    Before arriving in Winston-Salem, Stockdale helped Elon reach new heights as an assistant coach. The Phoenix finished the 2010-11 season with a 20-13 record - the program's best campaign at the Division I level. Elon made a postseason appearance that season for the first time since joining Division I.
