TCS welcomes new College Coach Director

Triple Crown Sports announces the addition to its staff of Melinda Fleeman as College Coach Director for softball.

Fleeman, along with College Coach Coordinator and 10-year TCS veteran Lynne Klingelsmith, will build upon and maintain TCS’ vast network of college coaches, ranging from NCAA D-I through the NAIA and JUCO ranks, and coordinate their presence at various Triple Crown events.

She comes to TCS after working at the University of Northern Colorado since 2013, most recently as Director of Administration for UNC athletics. She also handled equipment operations at the school and worked extensively with inventory controls, budgets and the streamlining of equipment and supply needs.

Fleeman worked at the University of Missouri-Kansas City from 2010-13 as coordinator for student organization accounts as well as the arenas of equipment and event operations.

“I’m eager to bring what I’ve learned working in collegiate athletics for the last seven years to a great company like TCS,” Fleeman said. “I hope to provide excellent customer service to our college coaches and create opportunities for them that are beneficial to recruiting top athletes to each of their programs.”

A native of Virginia, Fleeman worked for 13 years as facility director with Direct Sports, Inc., located in Pearisburg, VA. She played basketball and volleyball at Concord University in Athens, WV, and was an all-state honoree in prep volleyball and track and field.
