Special honor for former SCSU star

Former Southern Connecticut State star Kate Lynch received the Junior/Community College National Coach of the Year honor at last night's WBCA awards dinner.

Lynch led the Community College of Rhode Island to a 24-5 record and the Region XXI title in her second season as the head coach at CCRI.

Lynch graduated as Southern Connecticut State's all-time leading scorer with 1,779 points and led the Owls to the 2007 Division II national title.

The other coach of the year recipients were Notre Dame's Muffet McGraw in Divison I, Bentley's Barbara Stevens in Division II, Kris Huffman of DePauw (Division III) and George Wilson of the College of the Ozarks (NAIA).

Baylor's Brittney Griner was named the winner of the Wade Trophy and WBCA Defensive Player of the Year (UConn's Kelly Faris was one of the three finalists for that award).
