“I was very fortunate to work at FCC.  I always had great support from the College.  I had a chance to coach some excellent players, and I worked with two coaches, Jim Weddle and Dave Miller, who helped guide me and were very supportive of the women’s basketball program.  Sandy Smith also played a large part in our success, helping with every aspect of our program from washing uniforms to helping schedule.  All in all, it was a great experience for me and FCC will always be very special to me.”
