Belinda Hendrix

When Belinda Hendrix was introduced as the new softball coach at Chipola College, she expressed her desire to build a respectable softball program and develop her players into both scholars and players.


In ten seasons at the helm, Hendrix has certainly brought her dream into reality. Posting an overall record of 458-134, the Lady Indians have proven themselves worthy both in the state of Florida and on the national scene.


During the 2013 campaign, Hendrix’s team won their third State Title along with FCCAA Coach of the Year award (2007, 2010, 2013).


Hendrix’s most successful season occurred in 2007 when the Lady Indians, under her direction, captured the school’s first team national title. After posting an overall record of 57-6, Hendrix was honored by her peers by being named the 2007 NJCAA National Coach of the Year.


Coach Hendrix is a firm believer in the old cliché that hard work pays off. She is notorious for being a student of the game and passing her passion for the sport down to her players. She is well-known for developing players that can excel at several different positions.


Hendrix believes that the experiences and challenges her players face on the softball field will equip them with the tools to adapt and conquer anything life might throw at them. Using this mentality, Hendrix has coached 35 All-Conference Players and 6 NJCAA All-Americans.


A 1994 graduate of Chattahoochee High School, Hendrix led her softball team to a district championship and was named Most Valuable Player. Upon leaving high school, Hendrix received an athletic scholarship to Thomas University in Thomasville, GA, where she played on the Hawks’ softball team.


After earning her degree in Psychology from Troy University, she returned to the Florida panhandle. In 2001, Hendrix began her coaching career at Vernon High School where she would amass a three-year record of 56-22 and two district titles.

Didn't have a long-term experience with the site, however I found it more user friendly than CaptainU, which I had used in the past.
