He is the winningest baseball coach in school history with 275 career victories (275-281-14).

Stickley has guided the Generals to the ODAC Postseason Tournament each of the past four seasons and his teams have advanced to the ODAC Championship game twice during that span and three times overall.

W&L has notched a new program record for victories three times in the past eight seasons, culminating during the 2003 season when the Generals went 28-8 overall and advanced to the ODAC Championship game. His 2001 squad went 23-8 overall and his 1999 team posted a 21-12 record and reached the ODAC championship game.

The three-time ODAC Coach of the Year (1996, 1999, 2003), Stickley also guided the Generals to a 27-13 mark and an appearance in the ODAC Tournament Semifinals in 2005.

In 1986, Stickley left W&L to become athletic director and head baseball coach at Lexington High School. He returned to W&L in 1987, where he has remained as head baseball coach and an assistant football coach, currently serving as the football team's offensive line coach.

Stickley earned his master's degree in secondary education and administration from James Madison University in 1985. He graduated from Bridgewater College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in physical education in 1977.
