Mel Stubblefield has been named Head Coach effective April 2014 for the Bulldog women’s baskeball program. He was an assistant under Coach Jeremy Eggers this past season in 2014 before being appointed Head Coach by Athletic Director Bill O’Connor. After being the Assistant Coach for two years at Bellevue HS, their girls’ basketball won the WIAA 3A state academic award in 2012 with the highest G.P.A for a winter sports team. The Wolverines went from a .500 team to winning the 3A KingCo title two years in a row. In 2013, the team went 25-4 and placed 5th at state. Coach Stubblefield considers himself a defense technician which helped the staff to install a defense that had the Wolverines averaging 14 steals per game as well as having a player be named Defense Player of the Year for the conference. Stubblefield’s philosophy is that defense is an action and not a reaction; which by having a great defense it will create offense and championships. He plans on bringing that same philosophy to the Bulldogs.
Stubblefield’s coaching experience includes Olympic HS, AAU basketball, and numerous basketball clinics, including the Stanford University basketball camps.
