Wake Forest women’s basketball and head coach Jen Hoover announced the addition of Victoria Saucedo as the director of women’s basketball sports performance on Monday.

In this role, she implements a 12-month strength and conditioning program focused on the development of each individual athlete on the Wake Forest women’s basketball program.

“I am extremely excited to have Victoria join our Wake Forest family,” head coach Jen Hoover said. “She is a passionate and energetic person who has a contagious personality that I know will be a great fit in helping our young women grow in the gym. She has the drive to help us continue to elevate our program as we strive to get back to the NCAA Tournament this season. Her fire and commitment will help her build close relationships with our players, helping develop them outside of the game of basketball.”

Saucedo comes to Winston-Salem after spending a year at Saint Louis University where she served as an assistant performance coach for the Billikens’ volleyball, softball, swimming and diving, track and field, and field hockey teams.

In addition, she assisted the director of sports performance with men’s basketball and the associate director with women’s basketball during her time at Saint Louis.

Prior to her time with the Billikens, she served as a graduate assistant at Northern Arizona and interned at Cal Poly Pomona.

Saucedo was a standout softball player at Utah State, setting school career records for runs and total bases and finishing second in RBI, home runs and slugging percentage, third in batting average and hits, and fourth in doubles. 

She tied Utah State’s single-season record of 12 home runs in 2016. Saucedo garnered second-team All-Region honors in 2016; made the Mountain West All-Conference team three times, including a first-team nod in 2014 when she also was named MWC Freshman of the Year; and earned Academic All-Mountain West accolades twice.

A native of West Covina, California, Saucedo holds a bachelor’s degree in pre-physical therapy from Utah State and a master’s degree in educational psychology from Northern Arizona.
