Arlington, Va. - With a little over two months before the opening tip-off, Marymount University Women’s Basketball Head Coach Ashlee Courter has already inked a headline of her very own.
A Towson, Md., native, Courter decorates the pages of “Be What I Want to Be,” an annual publication distributed to over 90,000 Maryland high school students every September. The feature gives readers an inside look at Courter’s coaching career, exploring her inspirations and aspirations, as well as her best advice for readers and soon-to-be high school graduates.
The article notes Courter’s daily routine at the Saints’ helm, as well as the path that led her back to the Blue and White. A Marymount alumnus, she explains the pivotal role the program and former coach Bill Finney played in her quest for the coveted “head coach” title.
Produced in collaboration with the Maryland Daily Record, the full publication should be available shortly via the Maryland Business Round Table website.
Courter is entering her fourth season as the head coach of her alma mater. She was named the Capital Athletic Conference “Bill Finney” Coach of the Year last season as she led the Saints to a league record 12th CAC title and 17th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
Marymount opens up the 2013-14 season at home on Friday, November 15, as it hosts the annual Pablo Coto Tip-Off Tournament.
