New gig for Ashley Battle

Ashley Battle, a member of three national championship teams at UConn, has been named the head girls' basketball coach at Chartiers Valley High in Bridgeville, Pa., which is about 10 miles from Battle's hometown of Pittsburgh.

Battle had 1,054 points, 696 rebounds, 235 assists and 191 steals in 149 career games at UConn from 2000-05. Battle was taken by Seattle with the25th overall pick in the 2005 WNBA draft and played in 142 regular-season games over six seasons. Most of her time came with the New York Liberty. Battle played for the Liberty from 2006-09 and her best season came in 2007 when she had career-best marks in scoring (7.4 points per game), rebounding (3.7) and assists (1.6). Her WNBA career came to an end after appearing in five gams with San Antonio in 2010.

Battle replaces Spencer Stefko who led Chartiers Valley to a 137-51 record over the last seven seasons. During the 2012-13 season Chartiers Valley went 22-8 and reached the WPIAL title game for the first time in program history before losing to Bethel Park in the Class AAAA final.
