Cindy Mosteller

Cindy Mosteller's accomplishments as coach of the Garland High School girls softball team have earned her induction into the Garland Sports Hall of Fame. Her 2006 team finished the seasons with a record of 35 wins and only two losses and won the Texas state 5A championship with a 13-inning victory over defending the state champion Keller, 4 to 1. The team received a national ranking of third. Mosteller was selected Coach of the Year for the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. A year earlier her Garland team had done almost as well, posting a record of 33 wins and a single tie, until it lost to Keller in 15 innings in the state championship game, with Keller ranked number one nationally. Since softball became an official UIL sport in the 1993-1994 school year and Mosteller became the Garland coach, her 13-year record has been 315 victories, 82 losses, and four ties a 79% winning record. Her teams have made the state playoffs 12 times, won the district championship 11 times, and won eight area titles. Her teams were regional finalists six times, and twice were Region 2 champions and advanced to the state finals. In 2005 she was the 4A-5A UIL softball Coach of the Year and in ten years she was District Coach of the Year. For four years she was the Baylor University third baseman. In 1985 she was second team All-American and batting champion at the American Softball Association Major Womens Fast Pitch Championship. She was graduate assistant coach at Baylor in 1986-1987 and received a Masters degree in Sports Management. In high school in Westchester, Pennsylvania, she played softball, basketball field hockey and lacrosse. Cindy resides in Wylie, and enjoys her time with her wonderful niece, Nicole Burke, and her three dogs, BooBoo Digger and Boomer.
