What They Are Saying About Raduenz

 “I have known Patti for approximately 10 years and she’s someone I greatly admire in this profession. I have witnessed her as a head softball coach build a program into a championship program and she played a major role in turning the UNCW Women’s Basketball program around to its greatest finish in years. As an All-American player at the Division III, I know what it takes and the importance of being a great teacher, a great mentor and a great motivator. Patti does it at the highest level with class and integrity.” 

Karen Barefoot – Head Women’s Basketball Coach, UNC Wilmington 

 “Patti was thorough in her responsibilities as she showed passion for her position and exhibited truly genuine care for the student-athletes she worked with. I was impressed with her ability to manage the responsibilities entrusted to her and the manner with which she conducted herself and her business. She will run a first-class program, dedicated to a positive student-athlete experience; compliant in her business and will bring the championship mentality to the women’s softball program.” 

Adrienne L. Swinney – UConn, Department of Intercollegiate Athletics 

 “As a proud alumna of North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University, I believe Patti would be a wonderful addition to the Aggie Family. She is thoughtful, smart, and talented and built a wonderful program at Elon. She stepped away from coaching for a short stint to work with Norfolk Public Schools and to serve as the Director of Basketball Operations at UNC-Wilmington. She made this change to gain a broader perspective about Athletic operations. I think this will serve her well as she moves back into coaching. In the time I have known Patti, I find her to be self-directed, savvy, confident, and highly motivated, with a high degree of integrity. Patti is passionate about education and athletics and works very hard to excel and achieve both personal and professional goals.” 

Dr. Stephanie G. Adams, Dean of the College of Engineering, Old Dominion University 

 “Patti is organized and qualified to represent your department and university. She is a complete professional on all accounts. She is a proven winner at the Division I level as a Head and Assistant Coach.” 

Kristy Norton, Head Softball Coach, UNC Wilmington 

 “The Aggies have made a great hire in Coach Raduenz. I welcome her to Greensboro and wish her all the best! I have known Patti for a long time from our days playing pro ball. Patti is not a stranger to North Carolina and I am glad to see her back in the game. Her experience and her eagerness to compete will be a great asset to her student-athletes at North Carolina A&T State University.”

Janelle Breneman, Head Softball Coach, UNC Greensboro
