Wow! What a whirlwind of a year it has been! I have officially been on staff for a year now and definitely hit the ground running! Having known Coach Bria and the things she has done at Stetson was a no-brainer when she called me up to come work with her! Being able to join a program that has had great success over the years was a blessing!
I immediately felt right at home here and knew this would be a great place to learn and work. Meeting the players for the first time was like I had known them for many years. They all came up and introduced themselves and I could tell what a great group of ladies they were.
Starting last spring really helped me get the chance to start forming relationships with the girls before August rolled around. I had enjoyed the opportunity to get to know the girls off the court and it gave them a chance to get to know me.
Once school started in August everyone was anxious and ready to get down to business and work for that trip to the NCAA tournament and being Atlantic Sun Champions. We knew we would have a tough non-conference schedule ahead but knew that was only to prepare us for the battle ahead in conference play!
As conference play wrapped up and the conference tournament championship neared, our mission became clear of what we needed to do to be cutting down the nets! After three hard games and with the support of many great fans that we had with us in Macon, for the second time in three years the Hatters were cutting down the nets!
Being able to experience winning a conference championship with this group of ladies was an amazing opportunity. Knowing they have put countless hours in the gym during the off season and throughout the year.
I’m definitely looking forward to getting back to work and welcoming our Incoming freshman this summer to continue on building the Hatter Tradition!
