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.”
