On Saturday, April 14th, 2018 Stacy Johnson watched her team defeat Niagara County CC and with that victory she has become the Red Barons all-time winningest coach.

Johnson earned her 512th career victory with the win and became the all-time wins leader in the history of Corning Community College Athletics. At the helm of the program since 1998, Johnson has amassed a 512-188 record for an outstanding win percentage of 73%.

Through 21 seasons she has been named Region III Coach of the Year seven times (2000, 2003, 2008, 2009, 2014, 2015, 2016) and MSAC Coach of the Year ten times (2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017). She was also voted as WENY-TV Twin Tiers Coach of the Year at the conclusion of the 2017 season. 

Over the course of two decades Johnson has coached 46 NFCA All-Americans, 26 NJCAA All-Americans, 11 MSAC Player of the Year recipients, five Region III Player of the Year recipients, four Region III Female Athlete of the Year recipients, and has sent 24 players to further their playing careers on scholarships. Her teams have participated in nine Region III Finals, having been crowned Champions four times and have won numerous MSAC conference championships.

Game 1 of softball's doubleheader saw the away team jump out to a lead and stretch it to 7-2 before the Red Baron bats awoke. A single by Alana Eaton, a walk by Ciera Sprague, and a single by Danielle Dille loaded the bases for Sam Hauck. She proceeded to launch a grandslam over the centerfield wall in the bottom of the 7th with no outs to bring the Red Barons to within 1 before Corning was retired in order to end the game and delay the celebration. Hauck had a day, collecting 3 hits including the grandslam with 5 RBIs, while Danielle Dille and Alana Eaton had a pair of hits a piece.

Game 2 was a completely different story as Corning jumped out to a 7-2 lead and cruised to victory, 11-4. Rhilea Chabot threw all 7 innings giving up 4 runs on 9 hits in the victory while Michele DiNicola, Laura Tryon, and Sam Hauck provided the offense. DiNicola launched a homerun into the trees while collecting 2 hits and 4 RBIs, Tryon had 3 hits including a double and 4 RBIs, and Hauck chipped in 3 hits with a double and 2 RBIs in the record breaking game.
