Trinity Women’s Basketball Starts New Era Under Coach Wendy Davis
Trinity has hired Wendy Davis, who coached for the last six years at
Western New England College and played at the University of
Connecticut and professionally in the WNBA, to take over the women’s
basketball program. Longtime Bantams Coach Maureen Pine stepped down
in the spring. The Trinity women posted a 9-14 record last season
and a 2-7 mark in the NESCAC, qualifying for the league tournament
for the third time.
Davis earned a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from the
University of Connecticut in 1992, while helping the perennial
national power earn four NCAA bids and a trip to the Final Four in
1991. The seventh-leading scorer in UConn women’s basketball
history, she was a three-time Academic All-American and made the
all-tournament team in the 1991 NCAA Regional Championship. She
posted a 105-55 record as head coach at Western New England, earning
league post-season bids each year and East Coast Athletic Conference
bids in 2002 and 2005. This past winter, Davis was named the Great
Northeast Athletic Conference Coach of the Year, as the Golden Bears
posted a 19-8 record. She also served as an assistant coach at UConn
in 1993-94 and played for the New England Blizzard franchise of the
now-defunct American Basketball League.
“I'm very excited to be given the opportunity to coach at such a
prestigious institution as Trinity College,” says Davis. “Maureen
Pine did a great job there and I want to continue building the
program to the best it can be.”
