of the 1997 SEC champion Gamecocks.
A former Gamecock player, Whitlock was a two-time all-American during her collegiate career, earning the honor in 1995 and 1997. Her name even still sits atop the record books in several career statistical categories in the program's laurels. Following her collegiate career, Whitlock spent time as a member of the US National Team, as well as in the Women's Professional Softball League, the predecessor to what is now the NPF.
Whitlock's coaching career also includes stops at USC-Upstate, Chattanooga, and Mercer, in addition to several years at the high school ranks.
Members of the British National Team have included players such as Louisville alum Alicja Wolny and Columbus State utility player and outfielder Keeli Waugh.
