GREENSBORO, N.C. – Former Wake Forest women’s basketball standout Lisa Stockton was inducted into the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame on Monday, Sept. 18.

Stockton is one of 10 new inductees in the 13th overall class of the Guilford County Sports Hall of Fame, which was created in 2005 to honor the outstanding achievements of individuals in the sports arena from Guilford county.

Stockton, who played for the Deacs from 1983-86, currently sits ninth on the all-time program scoring list with 1,347 career points. She also ranks fifth in team history with 592 career field goals made.

When Stockton left the program in 1986, she was the program’s career leader in points (1,347), field goals made (592), assists (330) and steals (206), until her teammate Amy Privette passed her in 1987. Stockton still holds the Wake Forest record for consecutive games started (97). In 1986, she became just the fourth player in team history to reach 1,000 career points.

In her first two seasons at Wake Forest, Stockton led the team in assists, totaling 78 In her freshman season and 81 in her sophomore campaign. In 1986, her senior season, Stockton’s 204 field goals made rank eighth in program history for field goals made in a single season. Twice in her career, Stockton helped the Deacs set a program record for points per game over a season. The team scored 74.0 points per game in her freshman season of 1983, before surpassing that total with 74.2 points per game in her senior season in 1986.

Before her time at Wake Forest, Stockton starred at Western Guilford High School, where she lettered in four different sports (basketball, volleyball, track & field and softball). She was a four-time all-conference selection in basketball and won conference Player of the Year honors as a senior in 1982.

After her career with the Deacs, Stockton was drafted by the National Women’s Basketball Association, but instead chose to jump into coaching, starting at Greensboro College.

In 1994, Stockton accepted the head coaching position at Tulane, a position she still occupies today. In her 23 years with the Green Wave she has led her team to 11 NCAA Tournament appearances and 479 wins.
