Meet Coach Stewart

Jonna Stewart joined the Virginia Lady Eagle softball coaching staff in the fall of 2021.

A native of Virginia Beach and Portsmouth, Virginia, Stewart brings a wealth of softball knowledge to the Lady Eagles 12U team.  Stewart began playing softball since 1990; was named First Team All-Eastern District in 2000, 2001, and 2002 playing outfield, third base, and catcher; and was named Portsmouth’s Female Athlete of the Year in 2002.  While playing USSSA 18U softball, she committed to play at Randolph-Macon University in addition to enlisting in the United States Marine Corps Reserves.  With the given world dynamic at the time, Stewart transferred to Marine Corps Active Duty and has proudly served over 19 years as a Marine.  Throughout the years, she has remained active within the softball community playing and coaching in various adult leagues.  

Aside from softball, Stewart is also the Virginia Wesleyan University Field Hockey Team Assistant Coach and Strength and Conditioning Coach.  She has been with the Virginia Wesleyan University Field Hockey Team for the past four season.
