Head Coach - Southern Illinois University
Division I Representative (2018-20)
The all-time winningest coach in Southern Illinois softball history, Kerri Blaylock enters her 21st season at the helm of the Salukis. During her tenure, SIU has advanced to the NCAA postseason seven times, which includes being the only program in conference history to make five-straight trips from 2003-07. Southern earned an at-large bid to the 2019 NCAA Tournament, which marked the second time in the last three seasons that the Salukis have advanced to a NCAA Regional. Blaylock’s Salukis have posted 17 30-win seasons, including four 40-win seasons and a program-best 47 wins in 2005. The 2019 team won 17 conference games, the program’s most since 2005, and posted a winning record in conference play for the 24th-straight season. SIU has compiled a 693-383-1 record under Blaylock and continues to reach new heights.
