In two seasons as head coach of the Warhawks, Wilkes has guided the program to 84 victories. AUM finished 47-14 this season, earning the Gulf South Conference Tournament and NCAA Division II South Regional Championships.

Chloe Baynes and Kat Fallen earned All-American honors from the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA), while Baynes earned recognition on the D2 Conference Commissioners Association (D2 CCA) All-American Team as well.

Fallen, Baynes, Alanna Goble, Gia Martin and Haley Ann Frank earned D2 CCA All-South Region honors, while Fallen, Baynes, Goble and Martin earned NFCA All-South Region status.

Changes coming to Warhawk Health Services co-pays

Beginning Saturday, June 1, there will be an adjustment in Warhawk Health Services copay amounts for faculty, staff and their dependents. The amount will increase from $15 to $30 per visit for individuals in these groups.

The copay amount for students will remain $5.

The increase for employees and dependents aligns with the co-pay that is charged by insurance companies and will allow Warhawk Health Services to continue to offer the array of care it currently provides.
